If you have ever driven on I-70 between Booneville and Columbia, you have driven over the Missouri River. Have you ever wondered what exactly you are driving over or what fish and plants live in the Missouri River? Nicknamed the “Big Muddy,” the Missouri River runs 2,315 miles, making it the second largest river in the U.S.! With knowledge comes power, so help keep the “Big Muddy” beautiful by learning more about it.

Kids entering grades 4-6 are invited to join us for Missouri River All-Stars to work with a team to develop and carry out your own investigation of the Missouri River. Practice real-world science techniques while building your skills as a team player. Presented by Kristen Schulte, Education Coordinator for Missouri River Relief.

There are three different sessions you can attend. Since all three will be different, every interested child is encouraged to attend all the sessions that are available.
