In appreciation of the energetic and innovative individuals and organizations who work to protect and preserve the natural and historic assets of the Missouri River valley

We recognize MISSOURI RIVER RELIEF as one of our MISSOURI RIVER COUNTRY HEROES Missouri River Relief is based in Columbia, Missouri, and works with communities and individuals along the river to develop a better understanding of its value and beauty. Most well known for its hands-on river cleanups since 2001, River Relief also sponsors river camps, outings and a speakers series.

From time to time, we will recognize these heroes so that all of us can relay our thanks to them.
