We are thrilled to announce that Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) is again partnering with Orvis for their Great Giveback Days program throughout September!

At Orvis - Miracle Mile, located in St. Louis Park, you have the opportunity to make a difference by donating to FMR at the register from Sept.1 through Sept. 31. When you donate $10 or more, you will receive a one-time-use savings card for 10% off your purchase at Orvis - Miracle Mile. Some restrictions apply.

Perennial foods tasting night 

Come visit FMR at Orvis - Miracle Mile on September 14 from 5:30-7 p.m. We'll be there serving perennial foods made with clean-water crops, like Kernza crackers and beer. It's a great opportunity to learn more about our work while sampling some unique snacks. 

Since 2022, Orvis - Miracle Mile has raised over $21,000 to support our mission to protect, restore and enhance the Mississippi River and its watershed in the Twin Cities metro. We are grateful to be a recipient of their generosity this year. Contributions go to protecting clean water, restoring habitat and advocating for a river for all.

In just three years, Orvis' Great Giveback Days program has raised over $1 million dollars for many different organizations, including FMR, across the country. In 2023, their goal is to raise $500,000 in local store markets.
