The mission of the Missouri and Associated Rivers Coalition (MOARC) is to promote conservation and beneficial use of land and water resources.

MOARC was created in 1952 by a group of individuals desiring better water management following a disastrous flood. Today, membership consists of organizations, associations, companies, governmental units and individuals interested in sound flood control programs and supporting conservation of land-water resources.

We inform our members of water concerns within the association's area. We call on the expertise of local and national talent to broaden our natural resource perspective. We communicate to our members and the community through our website and via distributed materials.

MOARC sends a contingent to Washington, D.C. to advocate for our area's water projects on a regular basis. Our effectiveness is reflected in the number of projects that we have supported that have been completed. The trips are a valuable learning experience for everyone involved.
