How You Can Help!
There are several ways of supporting Missouri National Recreational River:

  • Be a Friend - Become a member of the Friends of the Missouri National Recreational River to assist in a variety of ways including event planning, membership, grant writing, and having fun.
  • Become a Volunteer - Volunteers are always being sought to help out in the Park and it's a good way to get to know the park and those that manage it.
  • Leave No Trace - canoeing and camping is an excellent way to preserve and protect the resources along the river.
  • Stop by the Lewis and Clark Visitor Center - browse the books and merchandise that will help you learn more about the natural and cultural heritage of the area.
