On July 16-18 HCA celebrated “Wonderful Weekend – Conservation” at the Monarch's Baseball ballpark. A big thank you to all of our fans who tagged us when they bought tickets which will support conservation efforts and education programs.


On August 1 HCA joined StoneLion Puppet Theater’s “Stormwater Sundays and had the pleasure to meet lots of KC families who stopped by to learn all about Renew the Blue with our trivia challenge.



We are collecting stories for the Blue River Story Project. Your Blue River story will be showcased at Heartland Conservation Alliance's Annual Partnership Summit on Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2021. We host this celebration each year to celebrate the successes of our partners.

The storytelling showcase will demonstrate the importance of connection and partnerships, brought together by the Blue River.

So, tell YOUR story. We can't wait to hear!



 


The next Education & Outreach Work Group meeting will be Thursday, 9/9/21 at 10 am.
