Guests were invited on the Riverboat Deck of the Missouri River at the Mesker Estate to celebrate the Twelfth Annual Awards Celebration for the Great Rivers Environmental Law Center. Everyone enjoyed the evening on the legendary Missouri River, while supporting the efforts to protect our natural resources while enjoying cocktails, hors d’ oeuvres, ragtime music and a silent auction. Presentation of the Lewis C. Green Environmental Service Award went to Robert E. Criss, Professor, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Washington University, for his long-term commitment to raising awareness of increased flooding risks and the dangers of floodplain development and inaccurate flood studies.
