The Missouri River is a significant natural resource for our community. It is a place for recreation and enjoyment, and it provides farmers with water for their crops. The "Big Muddy" is also home to a diverse ecosystem, including the pallid sturgeon. On today's Central Standard, we discuss the history of the Missouri River, its wildlife and efforts to protect it.
