About Us

Who are The Mississippi RiverWatchers?

The Mississippi RiverWatchers stand for the river as a community resource.
We are a group of concerned citizens who came together in the spring of 2012 to advocate for the river’s aesthetic importance, ecosystem value and recreational potential.

All members are volunteers.

We believe that there must be a balance between development and community values, and we will advocate for that balance.

Long term priorities include:

  • Stewardship
  • Elevating the value of the river as a community feature
  • Preserving the essential character of the river
  • Promoting recreation
  • Water quality
  • Shoreline clean up
  • Development watch

The Mississippi RiverWatchers are active from Appleton to Pakenham
