How is the health of the Mississippi River? Can I safely swim in it? Can I eat the fish I catch? What can we do about silver and other invasive carp? How are bald eagles faring?
At FMR we hear questions like these all the time. That’s why we partnered with the National Park Service’s Mississippi National River & Recreation Area unit to develop the State of the River Report.
Join FMR Watershed Program Director Trevor Russell at Fair State Brewing Cooperative for a brief overview of the report’s key findings. From invasive “flying” carp to bacterial contamination, from eagles to swimmability, Trevor will spend the first half-hour quickly highlighting the most important trends and emerging issues as well as potential solutions. Next, we’ll have an informal Q & A session then enjoy a brewery tour and free growler raffle! To make sure everyone has a chance to ask questions, and due to limited seating, capacity is limited and advance registration required.
