As Fall settles on the Mississippi River, we extend our gratitude to all who participated in last months’ River Citizens Challenge and to those who have shown up for the River this summer! From growing the community by spreading the word about 1 Mississippi (the only national public program dedicated to protecting and restoring the Mississippi River from headwaters to gulf) to taking advocacy action and attending local River-focused events.
