See the Great River Road in the New York Times!

Earlier this month, the New York Times published a fantastic piece about traveling the Great River Road.

Writer Peter Kujawinski’s article, “Along the Mississippi,” tells the story of his family’s road trip along the Great River Road from Illinois to Mississippi. He shares stories about visiting several interpretive centers along the route and even highlights the MRPC’s 10-state Great River Road map as a great resource.

Put the Drive the Great River Road Month Toolkit to Work

It’s time to put the 2017 Great River Road Month toolkit to work! It’s available on the Forms & Resources page. It includes a press release, story ideas, ways you can help promote the September giveaway, social media tips and a proclamation you can use to encourage local officials to declare September Drive the Great River Road Month in your state. Terri McCullough of Arkansas, National MRPC Pilot Pro Tem, did just that in Chicot County and it made the front page of the local paper. Thanks, Terri!
