Kansas City, Missouri (October 1, 2013) – Employees and the newest Young Environmentalist group of SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium are assisting in the Kansas City Big Muddy River Clean-Up, this Saturday, October 5th, at Le Benite Park in Sugar Creek, Missouri. The public is invited to join.

The Kansas City Big Muddy River Clean-Up is an annual event hosted by Missouri River Relief and Healthy Rivers Partnership to promote healthy rivers and streams in the Kansas City area. Volunteers participating in the clean-up will board boats to different areas along the river banks most prone to trash. Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt, trash bags, gloves, a reusable water bottle and lunch.

“One of SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium’s missions is to raise awareness about keeping rivers and streams clean to help protect sea creatures,” says Mendy Rose, marketing manager for SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium. “Participating in the Kansas City Big Muddy River Clean-Up is a great way to get our employees and guests involved in that mission.”

SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium’s newest Young Environmentalist group and employees will be participating in the river clean-up and invite the public to attend.

About SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium

SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium opened April 2012. SEA LIFE Kansas City takes visitors on an enthralling two hour journey from the fresh waters of the Missouri River, into the mighty Mississippi River then out into the warm blue coral strewn waters of the Caribbean Sea, ending in the deep dark abyss of the Atlantic Ocean. Come nose to nose with sharks and prepare for astonishingly close views of everything from humble starfish and seahorses to graceful rays. In addition, a stunning centerpiece is a huge tropical ocean tank with a walk-through underwater tunnel. To get any closer you’d have to get wet!
