State of the River Report to be released September 27th

Friends of the Mississippi River and the National Park Service’s Mississippi National River & Recreation Area unit have partnered to develop the “State of the River Report” to detail water quality and river health of the Twin Cities stretch of the Mississippi River.

This long-awaited report examines 13 indicators that illustrate the condition of the river and help answer common questions about how to protect and safely enjoy the Mississippi River.

The report will be released on Thursday, September 27th, 2012, and will be presented by the authors at an event at the Science Museum of Minnesota that evening.

Although the launch event is at capacity, we will be presenting the report at several additional events over the coming weeks.
