Updates Entry

Enjoy the Big Muddy Speaker Series each month in three cities!


The monthly Big Muddy Speaker Series is held in Rocheport, St. Charles and Kansas City.


The Big Muddy Speaker Series has its own website! A one stop shop for statewide Missouri River knowledge.

The monthly series is held in three locations, Rocheport , Kansas City and St. Charles. The free presentations bring in experts to discuss Missouri River issues, biology, hydrology, history and more.


Our thanks to our web designer Josh Nichols for making the website look so good and work so well.

The Big Muddy Speaker Series is hosted by a partnership with Missouri River Relief, Friends of Big Muddy, Friends of Lakeside Nature Center, Little Blue River Watershed Coalition, Healthy Rivers Partnership, Greenway Network, Columbia Fish & Wildlife Conservation Office (USFWS) and the Big Muddy National Fish and Wildlife Refuge.

Our goal is to increase knowledge of the Missouri River, its biology, history and commerce. Each month, another expert shares their knowledge with the public. All presentations are free, and each presenter is donating their time to the series.

We have been honored to have presenters representing the US Geological Survey, US Fish & Wildlife Service, Mo. Dept. of Conservation, Mo. Dept. of Natural Resources, the University of Missouri, regional non-profits as well as several local authors.

The Big Muddy Speaker Series is partially funded by a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Ecological Services Field Office in Columbia, MO, and a grant from the Mo. Dept. of Conservation.

Thanks to everyone whose hard work makes it happen!
