Daurius, all smiles here at the Earth Day cleanup in 2019, helped thousands of youth and volunteers protect and restore our river over his three years as FMR Program Assistant.

In three years, Program Assistant Daurius Mikroberts worked with more than 3,000 youth to help protect our river. As Daurius ends his role at FMR, we know the impact of his efforts will go on. >>

Celebrate the 50th year of Earth Day at the River Gorge cleanup!

Taking place just off of West River Parkway, this cleanup is an Earth Day tradition in the Minneapolis River Gorge. People come from throughout the local river corridor, neighborhoods and metro area – individuals, families, small church, corporate, student and scout groups – to celebrate Earth Day and contribute to the health and vitality of the Mississippi River. All are welcome!

Thank you, River Stewards!

In 2019, volunteers of all ages got their hands dirty with FMR at community volunteer events. Together over 1,400 individuals gave a combined 4,916 hours of service to help protect, enhance and restore the health of the river and our local communities. We're so grateful to our amazing River Stewards! >>

Another banner year for our young river stewards!


A big thank you to all the young river stewards who helped us protect and restore the Mighty Mississippi in 2019 — all 2,482 of you!

Students stenciled educational messages alongside storm drains, collected trash throughout Twin Cities parks and helped not only restore habitat along the river but research the best ways to keep it healthy in the future. ​Plus, students in our new pilot program for exploring the environmental field. >>
