Missouri River Relief Charity Profile

Missouri River Relief is a grassroots, volunteer and equipment-based organization dedicated to reconnecting people to the Missouri River through hands-on river clean-ups and education events.

The organization emerged organically from a group of people in mid-Missouri who simultaneously recognized the need for engaged stewardship of the Missouri River and the desire of citizens to take part in watershed solutions.

Inspired by a video of Chad Pregrackeís Living Lands and Waters barge clean-up crew, this group of Missouri River lovers put together a coalition of public, private and citizen stewards that brought the barge up the river, holding the first massive Missouri River clean-up at Easley, MO, in 2001.

Since that time, the organization has grown each year. To date, MRR has hosted 46 Missouri River clean-ups, bringing 10,032 volunteers to clean 479 tons of trash from 517 miles of the river. We have participated in and hosted clean-ups in six states, from the Mississippi River to Yankton, S.D.

But Missouri River Relief quickly realized that broader education is the key to solving our watershed problems. So we have also hosted 15 Missouri River Learning Festivals, bringing together corporate, scientific, agency and non-profit experts together to teach 8,612 middle school students about water issues right where it matters most, on the banks of one of the nationís largest river systems.
