COLUMBIA — Volunteers are needed in Glasgow for a Missouri River cleanup Saturday, according to a news release from the Missouri River Relief.
The cleanup will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, and volunteers will meet at Stump Island Park in Glasgow. Cleanup participants are encouraged to wear long pants and clothes they don't mind getting muddy, and they are required to wear closed-toe shoes.
Volunteers will be provided with all needed cleanup supplies, and they will receive lunch, a T-shirt and a reusable water bottle.
Boats will be shuttling volunteers to locations along the river for trash pickup. Personal boats are welcome, but no general volunteers will be allowed aboard.
The Missouri River Relief requests that volunteers register online, though volunteers will be allowed to register Saturday morning as well.
The Missouri River Relief has hosted 105 Missouri River cleanups, and its volunteers have picked up more than 700 tons of trash from the river.

Supervising editor is Shaina Cavazos.
