The Adventures of 12 Students on the Missouri River

Can you imagine exploring the Missouri River by boat, learning about ecology, history and the biology of aquatic river life from experts in the field? This is how 12 Missouri students ranging from 12-18 years old, spent their week with Missouri River Relief’s “Big River Experience” annual summer camp. The camp is part of the Summers@Mizzou program hosted by MU Extension and the 4-H Center for Youth Development. To trace their steps and learn from the adventures of these students, read below to follow their unique experience.

2015 Missouri American Water MR340 - July 28-31

Kansas City, KS, to St. Charles, MO

A collection of photos, articles and videos about the MR340

With river levels edging toward flood stage along parts of the race course, this year's race was the biggest ever. Hot temps, a nasty storm and a speedy river didn't stop many racers, and several records were broken. 

Great job racers, volunteers and ground crews! Thank you for your support!

Since 2007, Missouri River Relief has been a partner in the MR340 race - a 340 mile paddling race across the state of Missouri. Racers purchase super cool race stickers and all of that money goes to support our efforts. We bring as many safety boat crews as we can and help up and down the race course.
