Nicollet Island cleanup + celebration!

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.

Heading outside? Pick up litter through April — #DIYEarthMonth

First, a note...

In all honesty, we weren't sure if we wanted to promote cleanups during this difficult time. But, our river communities already made this decision! Many of you are already out there, picking up trash and improving the health of our environment and the river.

As you take a break, reconnect with nature and get a little exercise, please remember to follow the Minnesota Department of Health recommendations such as avoiding groups (stay by yourself or with your household), not touching your face and maintaining a safe distance from others.

An Evening Celebrating the Mississippi River

FMR's annual event, An Evening Celebrating the Mississippi River, is slated for Thursday, October 3, 2019, at the Nicollet Island Pavilion.  Sign up here to be the first to hear about the latest event updates (and share with your friends). You won’t want to miss this special event!
