Help us identify the river views we need to protect

Now through spring 2018, the 25 metro-area cities and towns in our local national park, the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, are working to identify scenic river views worth protecting.

Once each city has determined its list, they must work to protect these views according to new state rules that protect the metro river corridor. Let's help our cities compile the best list possible!

Check out the views submitted so far, and then tell us about yours via the form below. Views can be toward the river — from a public park, overlook or historic property — or toward the bluffs.

As you'll see, we have some featured views in need of photos. If you have an image to share, please do send it our way! Send the photo or link to Irene Jones,

Please note, we briefly review and polish the nominations before publishing them. We'll also present them to the planners developing the new riverfront land-use and development rules in your community.

If you have any questions about the form below, please contact Irene Jones at Thank you for helping to protect important river corridor views!
