FMR Conservation Map

FMR's Land Conservation program works with landowners, government agencies and concerned residents — including hundreds of volunteers — to protect and restore bluffs, prairies, forests and other lands important to our communities and the health of our metro Mississippi.

We improve climate resilience and the river's ecological functions through technical assistance, management planning and applied habitat restoration.

Our ecologists manage more than 40 active restoration sites throughout the metro area. Explore the map below to learn more.

Most of our work takes place on Dakota homelands.
