River City Outdoor Collaborative is working to build a vibrant outdoor culture and brand in the Greater St. Louis region by connecting the community to its outdoor assets.

We aim to:

  • Advocate on behalf of diverse and equitable outdoor opportunities in our urban, suburban, and rural areas;
  • Make outdoor recreation attractive and accessible for all residents and visitors;
  • Maintain and enhance the value of our region’s natural and recreational assets;
  • Accelerate and incubate outdoor businesses, organizations, and programs in and around St. Louis.

In doing these things, River City Outdoor Collaborative hopes to foster better mental, physical, and emotional health in the St. Louis community and help create a city where businesses want to locate and people want to live.

River City Outdoor Collaborative is a program of The Mound City Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization.
