New Website Launch & the Retirement of the Missouri River Relief Blog

 Missouri River Relief is excited to be rolling out a brand new website! The new and improved features a fresh look and modern redesign created by the talented website designer, Erica Martin of Pixel Jam Digital

Some of the new website features include an online merchandise shop with all the latest MRR swag, a news and updates section and a beautiful, easy to use donation page. Make sure to keep checking back for more as we add river resources and educational material to help you become an expert on the Missouri River.

Retirement of Missouri River Relief Blog 

With the launch of the new website, we have come to the conclusion that we have outgrown our "River Notes"  Blog and will be putting the blog into some much-deserved retirement. The blog will still be available to reference, we just will no longer be updating the blog. For the most up to date information about our program please visit

Watershed Expeditions at Home, Summer 2020

Week 1: Exploring your Watershed

Activities at home: Boat Building, Scavenger Hunt, and Map Making

Campers were encouraged to map a water droplet in their watershed by using an online mapping tool.

Then explore the movement of water in their watershed by building a boat from just 2 pieces of foil.

During the scavenger hunt campers were encouraged to notice life in their watershed, like trees and birds. Campers became more aware of the idea that water supports life.

What does water support in your watershed that makes sounds? Campers were encouraged to make a “sound” map of their watershed.

Highlights during our virtual camp session: Campers got to know each other by sharing an object that symbolizes a hobby or an interest. Some of the most memorable objects included a matchbox car, an aquarium, and a compound bow. Then we shared adventures from exploring the activities. Afterwards we played team building games. Encouraging group thinking like solving one-minute mysteries together is a great team builder. Try this one: A man left on Friday and returned on Friday but was only gone 3 days. How is this possible?
