March 28, 2017, Tuesday - 'State of the River' along the Minneapolis River Gorge

Time: 7:00pm to 8:00pm 

Location: Minnehaha Academy, 3100 West River Pkwy

'State of the River' along the Minneapolis River Gorge

Friends of the Mississippi River partnered with the National Park Service's Mississippi National River & Recreation Area unit to develop the State of the River Report.

Join report co-author Trevor Russell, FMR's water program director, for a brief overview of the report's key findings at Minnehaha Academy near the river in south Minneapolis. From invasive "flying" carp to bacterial contamination, from eagles to swimmability, Trevor will highlight important trends and emerging issues as well as potential solutions. 

The report highlights 14 key indicators of water quality and river health in the metro Mississippi River and made headlines throughout the metro and the state, helping to put the health of the Mississippi in the spotlight. It also comes with companion stewardship and policy guides to help readers take personal action to protect and restore our great river.

This talk is hosted by the Longfellow Community Council’s River Gorge Committee. Learn more on their Facebook event page.
