Leavenworth & Weston Missouri River Clean-up 2014

Riverfront Park, Leavenworth, KS

This was our first river cleanup in Leavenworth and Weston. First and foremost, we have to commend these two river communities for their hospitality and openness to our organization. Both communities were easy to work with and made planning this first-time event fun and seamless. During our trash scouts, we were amazed at the amount of trash we DIDN’T see. Weston, Missouri and Leavenworth, Kansas are two of the cleanest river communities we’ve ever seen. We give them kudos for their tremendous efforts to keep their communities and the Missouri River, clean!

St. Joseph Missouri River Clean-up 2014

French Bottom Boat Ramp, St. Joseph, MO

Our fourth river clean-up in the St. Joseph area was on a beautiful spring day. With graduations and college letting out, it was a busy weekend for the town. We had a relatively small volunteer turnout, but the folks that came were fantastic.  We had a bunch of old clean-up pros and some energetic new folks. 95 volunteers removed 1.2 tons of trash from 11 miles of the river!

Earth Day River Clean-up at the Confluence 2014

Columbia Bottom Conservation Area Boat Ramp

Earth Day weekend was the perfect time to hit the Confluence of our nation's two longest rivers: the Mississippi and Missouri, and clean-up all the junk that's floated in.

This year is the 250th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis - yet another reason to celebrate these two rivers that are the reason St. Louis is where it is.  2014 also marks the 25th anniversary of Missouri Stream Teams!

We had a great turnout, removing almost 5 tons of trash from the river!

Confluence Trash Bash 2014

Locations throughout North St. Louis

We had a blast at the Confluence Trash Bash. This year we worked with a group of volunteers, including our old friends the River Kids, on Mosenthein Island on the Mississippi River. 

The Confluence Trash Bash has grown into one of the largest one-day clean-up events in the state. It's organized by MSD (the St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District), St. Louis Audubon, Missouri Stream Team and a long list of local partnering organizations.

Hartsburg MDC Public Boat Access, Hartsburg, MO

Hartsburg Missouri River Clean-up 10-19-13 It had been since 2008 when we last enjoyed morels, music and mud in this tiny speck of a river town.  But as part of our 1st "Annual" Mid-Missouri River Clean-up, we set our sites on one small town in mid-MO on the third weekend in October.  On October 19th, we worked our final big event of the year and it was a blast!
