'State of the River' Launch & Presentation at the Science Museum of Minnesota
September 27, 2012 - 7-8:30 p.m.
How is the health of the Mississippi River? Can I safely swim in it? Is water pollution improving? Can I eat the fish I catch? What can we do about Asian carp? Do I need to be concerned about bacteria in the river? How are bald eagles faring?
At Friends of the Mississippi River we hear questions like these all the time. That's why we've partnered with the National Park Service's Mississippi National River & Recreation Area unit to develop the "State of the River Report."
Join us on this special evening at the Science Museum of Minnesota as we launch and present this groundbreaking report. There will be a brief presentation and a panel discussion; participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.
This event is free, including advance museum access and parking, thanks to our event partners and sponsors: City of Saint Paul, Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, Science Museum of Minnesota and the National Park Service! Science Museum access for participants begins at 4 p.m., including access to the engaging new exhibit, Future Earth. http://www.smm.org/earth
