The River Needs Your Voice!
Thanks to our growing base of advocates, FMR has been able to influence key river-related legislation and policies. Victories include closing the St. Anthony lock and dam to protect the Mississippi River from invasive carp, setting a national precedent by banning triclosan — a chemical that turns into cancer-causing compounds in our local waters — throughout Minnesota, and protecting important views of the Mississippi River valley.
The river needs your voice. Sign up to become a River Protector and we'll be in touch whenever there's an urgent petition to sign or event to attend — such as Water Action Day, April 19, 2017 — about the river issues you care about most!
