Remembering the Bohemian Flats: One Place, Many Voices at Mill City Museum - April 30

"Remembering the Bohemian Flats: One Place, Many Voices" explores the many perspectives on the people and the conditions of this early immigrant neighborhood adjacent to the Mississippi River.  Through photographs, newspaper clippings, maps and surveys, visitors can "journey" down the 79 steps from the bluffs to the flats, and see how a community in the middle of the city could simultaneously be at the margins of the river, of society, and of historical memory.

'State of the River' at Fulton Brewery - April 11

How is the health of the Mississippi River? Can I safely swim in it? Can I eat the fish I catch? What can we do about silver and other invasive carp? How are bald eagles faring? 

At FMR we hear questions like these all the time. That's why we partnered with the National Park Service's Mississippi National River & Recreation Area unit to develop the "State of the River Report."
