An Evening Celebrating the Mississippi River

Join us to celebrate the Mississippi in the midst of its fall splendor, Thursday, September 28. From our beautiful venue on the river, we'll toast to you and the recent successes you made possible.

Guests will hear from keynote speaker, Dr. Dorceta Taylor, one of the country's preeminent environmental justice scholars. Dr. Taylor, who says her work is about opening doors for other people by making the environmental movement more diverse, will talk about the intersection of environmental history, politics and justice, and what we can all do to make our special, natural places more inclusive. 

Additionally, the evening will feature an entertaining river-themed live auction, the renown Davu Seru Trio, and hearty local fare and refreshments — including a just-for-FMR signature cocktail.

Our Future, Our Food Forum

Update: Trevor will be at the Capitol tonight unexpectedly. He will try to make it to this event but it's difficult to say for certain if he'll be able to be there. 

Friends of the Mississippi River Water Program Director Trevor Russell will be joining a panel of local business owners, agriculture experts, and sustainable food advocates as part of this Mighty Earth forum.
