Help preserve the Mississippi River, while working together in a meaningful and unique way.

Our group volunteer programs are a great team building experience for corporate groups, community organizations, youth groups, and schools. Projects are available Tuesday - Saturday. Group volunteers develop a connection with their natural heritage through educational programs and informal learning opportunities with national park rangers during habitat restoration projects. Groups work to remove invasive plant species that threaten the health of the river, plant native flowers and grasses, pick up litter, and develop an understanding and appreciation of the Mississippi River.

Service-learning opportunities are customized for age, location, group size and date to meet the needs of your group volunteers. We work with you to find a location on the Mississippi River that is in need of restoration and is close to your office or school. All tools and gloves are provided.

Sample Schedule

  • 9:00-9:15 am: Introduction to project and educational warm-up

  • 9:15-10:45 am: Conduct service activities; informal and spontaneous education opportunities

  • 10:45-11:00 am: Educational program led by national park ranger

  • 11:00-11:45 am: Conduct service activities; informal and spontaneous education opportunities

  • 11:45-12:00 pm: Closing and thank you, followed by a group lunch if desired

These schedules can easily be adjusted and customized at any time including during the project based on your group’s needs. This can include extending breaks or accommodating changes in the weather.
