Past Clean-Up Events

James W. Rennick Riverfront Park, Washington, MO
Washington, Mo. is one of the most river-centric towns on the Lower Missouri River. The beautiful park overlooking the river is the ideal place to hold, not just a community river clean-up, but also a local river festival highlighting the town's connection to the river.
This time the river rose up to meet us! The river was in flood stage, covering the lower parking lot at Rennick Riverfront Park. This forced us to move the river clean-up to land sites but the festival went on as planned.
70 volunteers helped cleanup the Riverfront Trail, the park, along Tiemann Rd and at Dundee. We estimate over a thousand people attended the River Festival, enjoying the music, art and great informative booths by a bunch of local and regional organizations.

Bishop's Landing, Lewis & Clark Boathouse, St. Charles, MO
It was a blast to be back in St. Charles as part of Mission: Clean Stream, a county-wide clean-up event organized by Greenway Network. Greenway Network is a stream advocacy and restoration group that is celebrating their 20th Anniversary this year!
We had 150 superb volunteers on hand to clean-up six miles of the Missouri River in St. Charles. It was a perfect blustery and sunny spring day.
We'll be updating this page with all kinds of results, links and photos as we begin compiling them. Stay Tuned!

Kaw Point Park, Kansas City KS
The Eighth Annual Big Muddy KC River Clean-up at Kaw Point Park this year was a huge success, and the weather could not have been more beautiful.
The cleanup on Saturday, Oct. 20, was the inaugural collaborative project between Missouri River Relief (MRR) and Healthy Rivers Partnership (HRP), a newly formed river-stewardship, not-for-profit organization in Kansas City.
Saturday October 6, 2012
French Bottom Boat Ramp, St. Joseph, MO
We were so excited to come back to this historic river town! It's been since 2010! Despite a chilling drop in temperatures and sunshine, 125 brave volunteers came out to give back to the river.
This was Missouri River Relief's 3rd cleanup in the St. Joe area. Together with our community clean-up partners and volunteers, we were able to remove 6.9 tons of trash from the banks of the river! We love St. Joe!
Saturday September 22, 2012
NP Dodge Park, Omaha NE
This was Missouri River Relief's 4th clean-up in the Omaha area. Last year we enjoyed a fun and successful clean-up just before the monumental flooding, now known as the "Great Flood of 2011".
Together with our community clean-up partners and volunteers like you, we were able to remove 5.2 tons of trash from the banks of the river!
