A new documentary commemorating 40 years of Meramec River restoration will premier March 11, 2008, 7:00PM at the Sheldon Concert Hall in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. The film, Meramec River: Miracles and Milestones is a product of two events held in 2007 celebrating the rivers renaissance, the sixday, 108 mile Meramec River Media Float and the Meramec River Basin Summit. Professionally produced by award-winning videographers, John Baker and Jim Karpowitz, the film will cover such topics as river history, conservation, outdoor recreation and the economic value of the Meramec Basin to the region and State of Missouri.

The March 11th event will be a night of celebration and entertainment. Performances by local musicians and storytellers will set the stage for the premier of the Meramec River documentary. Some of the St. Louis areas most notable players in conservation will serve the role of storyteller and share their fondest memories of the Meramec River. Original songs inspired by the river will accompany the stories. The night promises to be a one-of-a-kind show.
