Our Mission is to conserve natural resources, encourage sound management of the watersheds, and protect the quality of life for the residents of the St. Louis Metro area. We do that by creating a network of communication and consensus among citizens, government leaders and other organizations that share our goals. Most of all, we encourage everyone to 'act locally' to make it happen.
Our region is rich in water resources and native wildlife habit. It is a land of abundant river bottoms, fragile wetlands, tranquil riparian woods, and rolling hillsides along soaring bluffs. But, our region is also one of the fastest growing areas in the Midwest. Our western area population has more than doubled in the last twenty years!
We believe people can live in harmony with nature if we plan and make decisions wisely. Greenway Network is your "eyes, ears, and voice" in that process, working to conserve what is naturally best about the St. Louis Metro area.
We sponsor St. Charles County Mission: Clean Stream and Race for the Rivers.
We support Missouri Stream Team by performing water quality testing, removing invasive species, and restoring riparian areas of our streams by planting trees, shrubs and grasses.
We participate in Public Lands Day and help develop parks and trails.
We provide environmental education presentations to the public and in our schools.
