Latest news



The Lower Mississippi River is trapped behind levees, inaccessible to most of the people who live on its banks. At the Lower Mississippi River Foundation, we believe that by connecting people to their waterway we can improve the health of the river and the lives of those who live in its floodplain. To do this we create opportunities for the people of the Delta to experience the wild beauty of the Mississippi and help us protect it for future generations.
