Volunteers needed for Missouri River cleanup


September 18, 2019

Press release

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. 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. 

Canoes, paddles, lifejackets, gloves and trash bags will be provided for this event. Thanks to the generosity of the Montana Sub Shop in Great Falls, lunch will be provided as well. A free barbecue dinner for volunteers will follow at Wood Bottom. 

The Friends of the Missouri Breaks Monument is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument through advocacy, education and stewardship. The Friends hope that this year’s river cleanup will bring community members together to enjoy a fall day on the river in appreciation for our public lands.
