Wild & Scenic Film Festival - 2014


Sunday, February 9th, 2014 - 2:00-6:00 p.m. The Blue Note - Columbia, MO

This was our fourth year hosting the Wild & Scenic Film Festival at The Blue Note in Columbia, MO, and it was a great success! On a cold, snowy Sunday afternoon, 250 people filled the venue to screen a diverse slate of films, feast on amazing treats baked up by River Relief volunteers and raise funds for Missouri River Relief. Thanks to many silent auction donations from a long list of community members and local businesses, we raised almost $6,000 for Missouri River Relief's local clean-up and education projects.

Our theme this year was the connection between humans and the world we share.

See photos from the event here.

We are so proud of our friends!

We are lucky to know a lot of heroes, but this past week, two of our biggest heroes hit massive milestones.

In the world of big rivers, it's been a great week!

Our deepest congratulations and muddiest river rat hugs go out to Chad Pregracke and Janet Moreland, and here's why.

Last week, Chad Pregracke was named the CNN Hero of the Year for his many years of cleaning up our nation's rivers.

If everything goes according to plan, Janet Moreland will be paddling into the salt water of the Gulf of Mexico today after traveling the length of the Missouri and Mississippi River system from source to sea. She is the first American and the first woman to do this entire journey.
