Missouri River Cleanup Set To Return

Missouri River Cleanup Set To Return

After the extended absence, the annual Missouri River Clean-Up near Yankton is returning on May 7th.

The project will run along both shores of the river from Gavins Point Dam to Riverside Park. Boats will transport volunteers along the river and haul trash to a collection point for recycling or disposal.

Missouri National Recreation River Park Ranger Dugan Smith encourages volunteers to help with the event on Saturday May 7th

Smith says this event would not be possible without the volunteers…

Besides collecting tons of debris, the clean-up provides people an opportunity to get out on the water in ways they might not otherwise.
