Blue River Rescue
We collected our 5 millionth
pound of trash!
Each year over 700 volunteers join us on
the first Saturday of April to be a part of the largest
one-day river rescue in Missouri!
first groups arrive, sign up, grab a cup of coffee and
a doughnut and are off to the sites before the official
start of the event.
Groups and families fan out along the banks
and discover a bit about why we care for this
Teams work along Indian Creek, a major
tributary stream to the blue, removing litter before it
Equipment is pressed into service to
remove cars, appliances and unsightly dumps.
Canoes float while volunteers work to remove tires usually
inaccessible to walking crews.
Put Project Blue River Rescue on your
calendars for next year! We'll keep working on
