The Missouri National Recreational River (MNRR) is a partnership-based park. Within the 126-mile MNRR corridor the National Park Service works with federal, state, county, and city agencies as well as commercial interests, private citizens and public interest groups to protect park resources, provide visitor services and programs, enhancing the park's ability to carry out its mission.
