By the end of the 2018 Minnesota legislative session this spring, FMR River Guardians exceeded a major milestone: we topped 2,000 members. That means that FMR can call on over 2,000 people to contact their representatives on behalf of the Mighty Mississippi when threats to the river arise.

River Guardians' impact in 2018

Since the beginning of 2018, River Guardians helped save 7.5 acres of open space parkland in Inver Grove Heights, reined in water quality rollbacks at the Capitol, worked for improved public access to the riverfront in North and Northeast Minneapolis and much more.
