The Mississippi River flows through the heart of America. For centuries, it has nourished our crops, fostered our wildlife and sustained our families. As human consumption has changed, we have in turn had a greater, often harmful, influence on the River. Pollution from farms, untreated sewage and factories along with weak enforcement of water laws has caused our once mighty Mississippi to deteriorate.
Together, we can protect the Mississippi River for future generations. We are dedicated to providing avenues for all Americans to lend their voice by calling for River protections. Take a moment to speak up on the River’s behalf and keep checking back for more actions.
