These folks, Vicki Richmond, West Coast coordinator for Missouri River Relief, and Vincent Gauthier, French historian for the KC Port Authority, would love to visit with on Saturday, March, 21st. And even buy you lunch.
All you have to do in return is show up at First and Main Street (near the pedestrian bridge and overlook) and lend a hand for a couple of hours cleaning winter debris from the Riverfront Heritage Trail. When you're done, take a walk along the river. I don't think you'll see an otter, but if you walk far enough you might see an eagle.
