Please join us in congratulating our co-founding member, Greg Poleski, who received the Stream Team Award for Advocacy, this past Saturday, July 27th, at the 23rd annual Watershed Celebration at Meramec State Park for his many years of service to our communities throughout the area.

“My forty years of paddling on our rivers has shown me their strength and beauty and my twenty years of volunteer conservation work has taught me our river’s importance to the health and welfare of our nation.

I believe the history, culture and biology of our rivers should be the basis of educational programs and projects that will create a river culture in our nation that recognizes the values of our rivers and will work to conserve those rivers.” – Greg Poleski
