Why should you make a gift?

Friends of the Mississippi River engages people to protect, restore and enhance the Mississippi River and its watershed in the Twin Cities region. Your gift today will help us carry out our shared vision of clean waters, restored habitat and a river for all to enjoy.

Water quality
Water quality continues to be one of the most pressing concerns for the Mississippi River. FMR activates people and builds partnerships and coalitions to influence public policies that impact the health of drinking water, the river and more.

Land conservation
We work with public and private landowners, government agencies and concerned residents to protect critical lands and improve climate resilience through technical assistance, management planning, and hands-on habitat restoration.

Stewardship & education
FMR connects youth and adults from diverse communities throughout the metro to the river through 100-plus habitat restoration and education events annually, helping thousands of volunteers and students protect local waters and wildlife.

River Corridor
Within local river communities, FMR supports grassroots advocacy and assists decision-makers to ensure that the essential values of public access, scenic views, equity and environmental quality are respected during planning and development processes.

Thank you for joining us to protect the Mississippi River and its watershed in our community!

There are many ways to get involved with FMR—by becoming a member, volunteer, and advocate for the river. Contact us at 651-222-2193 and by email at (Tessa) or (John). Learn more at
