Missouri River Activity Booklets Fill Columbia Little Free Libraries

Are you interested in becoming a National Park Junior Ranger?

Did you know the Missouri River is considered a National Park? Yep, it’s the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail.

The Little Free Libraries in Columbia and Jefferson City have been stocked with activity booklets. These include the following: 

Discover the Missouri River Activity Booklet: Will keep you twisting and turning and wondering what’s around the next bend. 

Junior Ranger Let’s Go Fishing: You can meet a fish and learn some other slimy fun facts 

Junior Ranger Space Flight Explorer: Challenge yourself to identify our National Parks from space. 


If you complete these activity booklets, you can take an oath to help protect our waterways and wear your Junior Ranger badge with honor!  

At Missouri River Relief we are dedicated to connecting you to the Missouri River. We love to inspire folks to appreciate the resources of our beautiful river. 

A big shout out to our crew members for helping distribute the activity booklets and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail for helping share information about the resources of the Missouri River.
