River Life a broadly inclusive program of the Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Minnesota
River Life is a "a broadly inclusive program of the Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Minnesota"
From the comprehensive website
"River Life a broadly inclusive program of the Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Minnesota, The University of Minnesota is a world-class comprehensive teaching and research university located in a National Park—the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area—overlooking one of the great rivers of the world. Yet the Mississippi River in the Twin Cities is a landscape that is both widely loved and highly stressed.
We see rivers and we love rivers but we don’t really understand them. Our knowledge of what rivers mean is dependent on recollected passages from famous books. Our understanding of how we use rivers depends on there being sufficient water so that those practices are not threatened. Changing climate and social patterns are calling both the ways we use rivers and express our love for rivers into question.
We work to understand the ways we stress the river, how we have expressed our love for it, and what we can do to safeguard its future. Taking strategic advantage of our location along one of the great rivers of the world, we seek to create learning, research, and engagement opportunities that will help establish inclusive and sustainable rivers.
We have three main program areas; Learning, Research, and Engagement.
River Life and the Mississippi River Network
River Life is the regional host of the 49-member Mississippi River Network.
The goal of the Network is to protect the land, water and people of the United States’ greatest River. Founded in 2005, the Network has grown into a diverse coalition of 49 nonprofit organizations and businesses from the River’s headwaters in Minnesota, to where it drains into the Gulf of Mexico.
The Network focuses on three priority issues that need River-wide cooperation:
Establish a national commitment to protect and restore the Mississippi River through increase public awareness and support.
Promote Farm Bill Conservation Practices throughout the Mississippi River Basin.
Encourage reliance on natural infrastructure and restoration of wetlands and flood plains."
