Minnesota just made real progress towards clean water.
Funding for Friends of the Mississippi River's two top priorities, the Working Lands Watershed Restoration Program ($594,000) and Forever Green ($1 million) was secured at the Minnesota Capitol on Sunday, May 22, 2016.
Both programs have received widespread support from clean water organizations, local government units, and farm and commodity groups. We'd like to thank all the River Protectors who expressed their support for these programs when it was most needed, not to mention Gov. Mark Dayton and the legislators who came through for the health of the Mississippi River and all of Minnesota's waters.
