Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

Virtual Program - Life on the Missouri River

Join us, on Tuesday, September 22nd, at 6:00 p.m. when the Library hosts, virtually, Illinois Historian and World Traveler, John Lynn, when he presents a unique presentation about the Missouri River.
The sprawling, brawling Missouri River flows 2,321 miles from its origin at Three Forks, Montana to the Mississippi River. Along the way, it has been the river of Native people, Lewis and Clark, traders, trappers, mountain men, homesteaders, cavalry posts, cattle barons, flatboats and steamboats, gold and silver rushes, oil and gas booms, and now sport fisherman and paddlers.
In this “armchair travel” virtual presentation, explore America’s longest river with John Lynn and experience the adventure of paddling all 2,321 miles of “The Big Muddy” through Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri.
John Lynn of Peoria has photographed all 2,400 Illinois cities, villages, and towns. He has also hiked, biked, and canoed enough historic and scenic trails, roads, and rivers in North America and Britain to circle the globe. He has now shared his experiences with over 4,000 audiences in three countries.
This program is free and open to the public. It will be presented in a live virtual format via Zoom. John will answer questions via live chat.
