SOTR promo

Join us at the Science Museum of Minnesota on September 22, 2016 from 7pm to 8:30pm as we launch and present the newly updated State of the River Report! FMR has partnered with the National Park Service’s Mississippi National River & Recreation Area unit to update the “State of the River Report,” first released in 2012, which provides a clear and concise snapshot of the health of the Mississippi River.

After a brief introduction, the report’s principal authors FMR Water Program Director Trevor Russell and Water Quality Coordinator Lark Weller— of our local unit of the National Park Service will quickly and concisely summarize a wealth of water quality and aquatic ecosystem data. The second half of the event will feature a hosted conversation or panel discussion with Trevor, Lark and additional water quality experts involved in the making of the report. 

Additionally, registrants may enjoy the Science Museum of Minnesota’s exhibits free of charge beginning at 4 p.m.
