Video from American Rivers/Ozark National Scenic Riverway Press Conference

On Tuesday, May 17, Alpine Shop Kirkwood hosted a press conference organized by American Rivers, Friends of Ozark Riverways and Ozark Fly Fishers. The purpose of this publicity event was to announce that American Rivers – a national organization that protects and restores the nation’s rivers and the clean water that sustains people, wildlife, and nature – had named Missouri’s Ozark National Scenic Riverways one of the 10 Most Endangered Rivers in America.

Below is the press conference in its entirety broken up into four parts. Get informed and visit American Rivers’ Most Endangered List for information on how you can help the cause.

    In my opinion, a big problem arises from people, many underage, using these rivers on weekends as places to drink, party and use drugs. Also, overcrowding occurs on many summer weekends from too many outfitter provided boats. Both are a problem only on summer weekends. Then is where better management needs to take place. During the week and off of peak seasons, overuse is not a problem. Therefor management needs to focus on targeted heavy use summer weekends, not on year around changes.
