In the Wild with Greg Wagner


MIGHTY MO UPDATE by Greg Wagner

Just wanna show you how flooding is impacting areas along the Missouri River on our eastern border, especially near Omaha. These photos, courtesy of my good friend Brook Bench at Omaha City Parks, are all of N.P. Dodge Park on the northeastern edge of the city.

All areas that we are aware of on the Missouri River bottom are closed to access due to the extensive flooding.

Herb Angell, our Game and Parks Boating Law Administrator, is strongly suggesting that people stay off the Missouri River as it is beyond flood stage and dangerously high. The river is running is extremely fast, plus carrying a lot of debris. In fact, Herb says, there is so much bottomland flooding that the river is inaccessible by boat anyway.

Don’t forget though, state parks along the Missouri River like Indian Cave, Ponca and Niobrara are accessible by road and have high-and-dry campsites available for the weekend.  

Might see you out there, but not on the Missouri River!
