New FMR film about our local national park — Watch the trailer and sign up for the premiere!



To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016, FMR is making a documentary about our very own national park, the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area. The film tells the story of the effort to get Congress to designate the park, explores the meaning of this legacy, and stresses the need for continued stewardship and advocacy on the park's behalf. Check it out!

Because of you: A great year for the river, The 2014 FMR annual report

Friends of the Mississippi River 2014 Annual Report cover

We are proud to announce Friends of the Mississippi River's 2014 Annual Report, "Working Together to Protect Our River." We hope you enjoy reading about our many advocacy, conservation and stewardship victories. From the triclosan ban to increased urban access, to the protection of important natural areas and iconic river valley views, none of this work would be possible without the support of our generous donors, volunteers and friends. Thank you all for actively caring for the Mighty Mississippi, a national treasure within our midst.
