Renew the Blue

Renew the Blue is a messaging campaign that was started by a group of motivated individuals who all saw a need for a unified way to talk about the need for conservation in the Blue River watershed in 2014.


The Renew the Blue partners include:

  • Bridging the Gap

  • Healthy Rivers Partnership

  • Heartland Conservation Alliance

  • Jackson County Parks and Recreation

  • KCMO Parks

  • KC Native Plant Initiative

  • KC Water

  • Mid-America Regional Council 

  • Monarchs on the Move

  • Youth Volunteer Corps/ YMCA

These partners work to protect the Blue River through:

  • Restoring riparian forests, upland habitats and wetlands.

  • Revitalizing brownfields and urban neighborhoods with connections to the river.

  • Engaging the community to connect people — especially neighbors — to the river.
