Volunteers Needed for Missouri River Cleanup
September 25, 2019
The nonprofit Friends of the Missouri Breaks Monument is seeking volunteers for a Missouri River cleanup on National Public Lands Day.
The event will start at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Chouteau County Fairgrounds canoe launch in Fort Benton, and end by 5 p.m. at the Wood Bottom Recreation Area in the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument near Loma.
Volunteers will paddle 20 miles between Fort Benton and Wood Bottom, picking up articles of trash along the way. The last time the Friends hosted a river cleanup, many large items, such as tires, were found on the riverbank....
