About Us

Friends of the Mississippi River engages citizens to protect, restore and enhance the Mississippi River and its watershed in the Twin Cities region.

Annually, over 3,500 local river stewards get their hands dirty through FMR cleanups, storm drain stenciling outings, invasive species removals and other hands-on habitat restoration outings. We hope you can join us! Visit our events calendar for the most up-to-date listing of volunteer opportunities and events.
