The Mississippi Watershed Management Organization is based (almost) in our neighborhood–at 2522 Marshall Street NE (very near the Lowry Avenue bridge)–but is involved in projects investigating and enhancing the Mississippi River environment. Its building and grounds are a demonstration of various means of handling stormwater runoff and capturing rainwater to aid plantings in periods of drought. More information about MWMO is on its web site and in a newsletter (The Drift) that is available, free of charge, at the Northeast library, the Eastside Food Co-op and other locations.
