Mississippi Park Connection provides opportunities for people to get to and on the river – and have a national park experience in the Twin Cities. We do this through our youth education, community engagement, and environmental stewardship programs that connect people our national park.

 

The Mississippi National River and Recreation Area will lose 500,000 ash trees in the next few years due to the invasive pest, Emerald ash borer.

We need your help to Plant for the Future!
