Franklin Island Conservation Area and Isle of Capri Hotel & Casino
As part of our 2014 Big Muddy Clean Sweep, a two-month continuous clean-up in September & October, we spent a wonderful week in Boonville. The day included two events in one with the Boonville Missouri River Clean-up and first ever River Festival. It was a full day of fun on the river - one we'll never forget!

We kicked off our Big Muddy Clean Sweep 2014 with a great cleanup of the Grand and Missouri Rivers based out of the sweet river town of Brunswick.
81 volunteers removed 2.1 tons of junk from the banks of both rivers.

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!

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!

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!
