Kansas City – Big Muddy Speaker Series
The Kansas City series is held at 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Our current venue is the Westport Coffeehouse Theater, but be sure to check this month’s presentation page for any changes or updates.
Kansas City was founded because of its location on the Missouri River. Today we are lucky to have so many experts willing to share their knowledge with us about this amazing river, its floodplain and the nature and history that surrounds it. We’re trying to keep the topics varied and interesting, but if you have an interest in the Missouri River, we think you’re going to love these.
