Volunteers on Nicollet Island

Join FMR and Odell Brewing Company for this island cleanup to "Make it Pretty"! We'll collect trash from the shoreline and from the forested areas of Nicollet Island to prevent pollution and improve water quality in the Mississippi River.

FMR is leading a multi-year restoration of the natural areas on the north half of the island in partnership with the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization and the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board. The restoration plan includes enhancement of degraded forest areas and the creation of new, diverse habitat -- like native prairie and a maple forest. Explore our work on the island while working to keep these newly-restored sites clean!

Odell Brewing Company and Red Cow and Red Rabbit restaurants will be donating $1 to FMR for every pint of Odell beer sold in June, along with $1 for every 6-pack sold at select area liquor stores. Show your support for FMR while enjoying a craft beer!

This event is now closed. To receive notices of all FMR events, sign up for our twice-a-month e-newsletter, Mississippi Messages.
