Wild & Scenic Film Festival 2017

Thanks to a generous donation from the Blue Note, we were back in our favorite venue for the 7th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival. 

We usually count on horrible February weather to drive our nature loving friends inside to enjoy an afternoon of films with friends, but this year the weather was beautiful. But almost 500 people still showed up and packed the Blue Note! 

Thanks to all of those great attendees, the generosity of our sponsors (check out the list on the right), the fantastic donations of silent auction items from the community, unbelievable homemade treats, our amazing Alpine Shop "box office" and the hard work of our volunteers and the Blue Note staff, the whole event raised $5000 beyond expenses for Missouri River Relief! 

Plus we got to enjoy three hours of fantastic films and the truly wonderful music of Ruth Acuff and Jeff Mueller in the historic Blue Note. What a day! Scroll down for links to watch most of the films. 

Thanks to all of you that made it happen!

Reduce plastic bag waste AND support River Relief at Lucky's Market!

Bring your own shopping bags and turn them into cash for River Relief!

Today through January 28 at

Lucky's Market

Our friends Alyce and Lisa have been paddling the Missouri and Mississippi River all summer and fall as part of their Source of Confidence expedition. (Check out their Facebook page here).

They have seen a LOT of plastic shopping bags along the way, and they decided that one thing they could do is FILL those stupid bags with other river trash and get rid of them! 

River Trash

But here's a better idea...NEVER TAKE THOSE BAGS IN THE FIRST PLACE! 

Thanks to the awesomeness of our friends around the world that voted on Facebook, Lucky's Market in Columbia, MO, has invited Missouri River Relief to be part of their "Bags for Change" program from now until JANUARY 28th!

That's like next year!
