Upper Mississippi River Initiative
Project for Izaak Walton League of America, Inc. Minnesota Division

Support Our Upper Mississippi River Initiative


The four-state Upper Mississippi Region is where landowners and residents of each watershed work together to achieve the fishable/swimmable goals of the Clean Water Act, as conservation becomes part of everyday life.

 Key Strategic Approach

Use “The Human Dimension” to create the local will, volunteer base, and scientific expertise to apply known solutions to watershed problems to achieve our Vision.

 We seek to
  •  Restore the League’s leading role in conservation within the landscape where we were born 95 years ago;
  • Utilize Izaak Walton League members and allies to create collaborative relationships within local watersheds of the region, to create the will to effectively address agriculture’s impacts on the people’s waters.
  • Overcome the political polarization, which renders ineffective many scientific, technical and governmental efforts to address these issues.
