New High Tech Ways to Reconnect to America’s Great Rivers

The recent installation of two webcams on the St. Louis, MO and East St. Louis, IL riverfronts makes The Confluence Partnership a member of the global video community. Real time live images of some of the world’s most interesting and unique views and events are available 24-hours a day from anywhere in the world.

Geocaching – a growing international phenomenon that combines a real-life outdoor treasure hunt with GPS-enabled technology – now provides fun ways for children and families to explore the 200 square mile Confluence network of conservation, heritage and recreation attractions.

And the Confluence cell phone tour has been expanded to give users valuable information about 28 major sites. These interactive innovations will engage new visitors and will allow everyone to experience The Confluence in fresh, new ways.

Funding for this project was provided by the Mabel Dorn Reeder Foundation with cell phone technology provided by guidebycell.com and webcam technology by earthcam.com.
