Crew Completes First Leg of Mega-Scout

Well, we did it......I return home with a great sense of satisfaction and pride. We covered 420 miles over 2 weeks. We mapped all of the trash and made new friends and associates along the way. We were featured frequently on TV and in the newspapers. And we did it with skill, integrity, comraderie, and a deep appreciation for the river.

It was hard to leave the river yesterday and return to our "normal lives. But we will be back on the river soon, hosting education events and river clean ups. And we will complete the remaining 333 miles of scouting this fall...

Stay posted.

Can we keep this going for all things Missouri River?

Thanks for your comments abcnkc, and everyone else who has posted (like our friends Coop and Soda). We will keep this blog space open until the megascout is completed.

Let's all think of ideas for extending this conversation into the future and getting more people involved. Does anyone know of other Missouri River blogs that we should check out?

Missouri River Relief is a non-political entity, whose mission is to reintroduce people to the Missouri River through clean-up and education events. The open format of a blog invites political comments and opinions. I just want to point out that we are encouraging open conversation about the river, but do not support any particular policy position regarding it.

What format would make sense for this conversation?

Thanks, Steve Schnarr
