We've got three major projects going on this year.

1. Aerial MegaScout - We teamed up with EcoFlight to fly the Lower Missouri River, mapping major trash deposited by recent flooding and adding it to our MegaScout GIS database. Click for more info»

2. Upriver Rolling Clean-ups - Our partners in Yankton, Sioux City and Omaha are working with us on a series of clean-ups below the Gavin's Point Dam.

3. Big Muddy Clean Sweep - Our signature project of the year. We'll be chartering the Living Lands and Waters trash barge for a few months, doing a clean sweep of trash from Kansas City to the Confluence in St. Louis. We'll be stopping in communities along the way for clean-ups, education and good ol' riverside gatherings.

As we add more projects to our schedule, they'll appear here, where you can link for more info. Some of these are organized by friends, some by Missouri River Relief. You can also download our latest schedule here»
