When:   Wednesday March 14 @ 7:00pm,  Social hour 6:00pm 

Where:  Big A's on the Riverfront308 N. Main St., St. Charles, Mo 63301 

We are honored to have Steve Schnarr, the Program Director of River Relief, as our guest for the March 14th Big Muddy Speakers Series. Steve Schnarr lives in Columbia, Mo., a stone's throw from the Missouri River. His love for the river developed from years of exploring its waters by canoe. He was drawn to Missouri River Relief as a volunteer at local clean-ups, later serving as an event coordinator, MegaScout coordinator, MRR board member. Steve coordinates the Big Muddy Speakers Series and River Relief crew, manages the River Relief website and communications and organizes clean-ups across the state.

Missouri River Relief is a community, volunteer and equipment-based not-for-profit organization dedicated to connecting people to the Missouri River through hands-on river clean-ups, education events and stewardship activities.The organization emerged organically from a group of people in mid-Missouri who simultaneously recognized the need for engaged stewardship of the Missouri River and the desire of citizens to take part in watershed solutions.

MRR has hosted 168 Missouri River clean-ups, bringing 25,537 volunteers to clean 906 tons of trash from 1,200 miles of the river. They have participated in and hosted clean-ups in eight states, from the Mississippi River to Yankton, S.D.  we have also hosted and participated in 148 Missouri River Learning Festivals, bringing together corporate, scientific, agency and non-profit experts together to teach 21,124 students about water issues right where it matters most, on the banks of one of the nation's greatest 
Presentation is FREE and open to the public!
