Every year the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) spends $1 million dollars in litter clean up along rivers, streams and lakes. While there are few people statistically who litter in Missouri, there are still some who do, making littering a lingering problem for the state.
Quite often, trash bags are one of the last things we think to pack for our annual float trips. In fact, sometimes we forget to bring them at all. Or, we make our best effort to collect our trash throughout the day, but then our canoe tips over and our trash scatters all over the river out of arm’s reach.
Going on a float trip can be an exciting way to experience nature. People come from all over the country just to enjoy floating on the beautiful rivers and streams that wind there way through the woods of Missouri. Floaters will generally see a vast variety of landscapes from jetting cliffs, pristine woods and even caves.
