      Great Plains Lecture: Befriending the Mighty Mo

      The Missouri River, North America's longest river, is among the most important features of the Great Plains. Portions of this expansive waterway comprise a national park, the Missouri National Recreational River. The Friends of the Missouri National Recreational River organization advocates for this river, focusing on its scenic and recreational opportunities, its cultural, historical values, and activities that help sustain the river's economic viability. Representatives from the organization will share insights on why this valuable river means so much to the Great Plains. Featuring: Daniel Peterson, Chief of Interpretation, Education, & Outreach for the National Park Service, Missouri National Recreational River. Over the course of the last decade Dan has worked for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service as a Wildlife Refuge Specialist, Visitor Services Specialist, and Park Ranger at three different areas. Jarett C. Bies, writer/kayaker. For more than a decade Bies has supported efforts to get more people on the water as a member and past president of the South Dakota Canoe & Kayak Association. The presentation will also include a short documentary film about conservation efforts being made on the Missouri. This lecture is part of the Paul A. Olson lecture series and is free and open to the public. Parking is usually available in the Que Place garage (entrance at 11th and Q streets). Note there is construction in the area.
