Mission: The Coalition for a Clean Minnesota river was founded in 1990 due to the vision of several individuals whose love for the Minnesota River allowed them to see its potential, as well as its extremely polluted condition. They wanted to leave the legacy of a clean river to future generations. Over 50 organizations and hundreds of citizens have joined efforts and are now carving out their own unique roles in restoration. We have a passion for our work.
