Mission Statement

Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) advocates a new vision for the Mississippi, especially the river and its watershed in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Through active leadership and education, Friends seeks to preserve and restore the river's fish and wildlife, its vital floodplains and scenic bluffs, its natural and cultural treasures, its beauty and its romance. We envision a river on which small boats are safe and welcome, to which we have clear and easy access and in which we can safely swim and fish. We envision a river that is cleaner, healthier, more alive and more inviting, a river no one can ignore or take for granted.

Description

Friends of the Mississippi River works to protect and enhance the Mississippi River and its watershed in the Twin Cities metro area -- and was recently recommended for its volunteer opportunities in the Twin Cities METRO magazine Good Karma Guide!

We are proud to work with roughly 3,000 volunteers a year. We keep volunteering simple, fun and satisfying -- there are no applications, and you can sign up for one two- or three-hour event or several. We list events that are especially in need of volunteers here on VolunteerMatch.com, but maintain a full calendar of roughly 60 events a year at www.fmr.org.

Our project work includes conservation and restoration of natural areas and habitat, education on watershed protection issues, and organizing activities that connect the public to the Mississippi River.
