Our Future, Our Food Forum

Update: Trevor will be at the Capitol tonight unexpectedly. He will try to make it to this event but it's difficult to say for certain if he'll be able to be there. 

Friends of the Mississippi River Water Program Director Trevor Russell will be joining a panel of local business owners, agriculture experts, and sustainable food advocates as part of this Mighty Earth forum. Come learn about how changes to growing practices, policies and corporate sustainability efforts can make our food system more sustainable and clean up our water.

Help pull weedy invasive plants at St. Paul Park's Riverside Park

Join us for a volunteer work night at St. Paul Park's Riverside Park. Located near the backwaters of the Mississippi River, consisting of 14-acres of oak forest, Riverside Park is a nature study area. Maintaining this park's natural state provides much-needed habitat and resources for local critters of all kinds, and serves as an oasis along the Mississippi River flyway for migratory birds. 

Thank you for making FMR's fall event our most successful ever
