Missouri River cleanup campaign hits St. Charles Saturday

Missouri River cleanup campaign hits St. Charles Saturday


ST. CHARLES • The public is invited to take part Saturday in the St. Charles area segment of a statewide Missouri River cleanup drive.

People who want to join the effort, called the Big Muddy Clean Sweep, should show up at either 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. on the parking lot outside the Lewis and Clark Boat House and Nature Center on the St. Charles riverfront.

Signs will direct participants to cleanup headquarters. Boats will then take them to areas of the river targeted for cleanup.

The campaign, organized by Columbia, Mo.-based Missouri River Relief, will move on Sept. 29 to the Columbia Bottom Conservation Area boat ramp in north St. Louis County.

A barge has been chartered to cruise the length of the river in the state and serve as the common receptacle for trash picked up in cleanup drives along the way.
