National Public Lands Day Activities in the Confluence Region will take place on Saturday September 23, 2023.
Volunteers are needed for planting, BioBlitz, and river clean-up. Greenway Network Conservation Teams and other volunteers will be working on public lands near the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. The Cora Island Unit of the US Fish and Wildlife Big Muddy Refuge, the Missouri Dept. of Natural Resources Jones Confluence State Park, and the US Army Corps of Engineers Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary need your help conserving and restoring our lands and waters. Please bring gloves, a water bottle, and boots or sturdy shoes. We work rain or shine, so bring your sunscreen or rain gear! Come outdoors and join the fun!
You can find activities suitable for all ages and abilities. Start time for Ellis Island will be 8 am (see neefusa.org link below), and at 8:30 am for Cora Island and Jones Confluence Park options.
