FMR River Guardians and members at the end of 2018

Minnesota's 2020 legislative session is wrapping up so it’s time to celebrate our victories and consider our next steps. 

Though we're apart, we can still celebrate together. Join us for a virtual happy hour to hear from FMR's Water and River Corridor Program Directors, and to raise a glass for our hometown river.

Our program for the evening will include Mississippi River trivia, a short presentation from Water Program Director Trevor Russell about the good, the bad and the ugly this legislative session, and an update from River Corridor Program Director Colleen O'Connor Toberman on how development projects fared this year. Come prepared with questions for our directors!

In a normal year, we would use this gathering as an opportunity to support a local brewery and celebrate local beer. If you do get takeout beer from your favorite local taproom, pour a glass for the happy hour and share with us which local business you are supporting!

Right now, we're planning this event for June 3. The date is subject to change, based on whether the legislature calls a special session. We'll keep you updated on the final event date!

Register now!

All are welcome, and FMR members and River Guardians are especially encouraged to attend. Be sure to RSVP for yourself and your friends so we can share the Zoom link before the event.

Members and River Guardians

Anyone who donates to FMR becomes a member, whether you donate on our site or give a gift of support when you RSVP using the link or form above. As a member, you strengthen our local role as the community voice for the river. You also receive river news and FMR updates, advance notice when registration opens for special events, and the satisfaction of making a tangible difference for your river and your community.

FMR River Guardians sign online petitions when their help and voice are needed the most and are invited to special advocacy trainings and meetings (like this happy hour!). Everyone who participates in this event will be signed up as a River Guardian, or you can learn more or sign up now online.

Your voice matters and your advocacy and generous support of FMR has made a big, lasting difference for our Mississippi River. Thank you FMR members and River Guardians old and new!
