Events & Activities



Friends of the Mississippi River is proud to host over 100 high-quality outings and events annually. Come get your hands dirty and help restore local river habitat, learn to make your home or garden river-friendly, or toast the river with us!

Winter is our slow season so be sure to check back in this spring, or, better yet, sign up for Mississippi Messages to receive FMR event calendars. We look forward to seeing you on the river!
