» Get Involved

The Mississippi River has always been a focal point of life here in Central Minnesota, for all of the opportunities it provides for residents, commerce, and visitors alike. Here’s how you can get involved:


Recreation: I can paddle it, I can stroll along it, I can fish it …

Development: I can build next to it, I can have dinner by it, I can create events overlooking it …

Preservation: I can help keep it clean, I can discover rare species, I can visit a natural park, I can restore my land …

Tourism: I can promote a river event, I can explore the river’s history, I can create opportunities for people to “get into it!”

If you’re captivated by the Mississippi River and have ideas you’d like to help implement, we’d love to connect you with the people and resources to make those ideas happen.
