ABOUT US

The Meeting of the Rivers Foundation (MTRF) is an organization of volunteer board members dedicated to improving and enhancing exhibits at the NGRM and outreach programs along the Mississippi River.

MISSION

To conduct programs and activities that promote public awareness and understanding of the great rivers, their environments, their place in the natural world, and the dynamic interaction between the river systems and the human and wildlife communities that border them.

Individual “vision attributes” from the 2003 strategy were rewritten and consolidated into a brief vision statement that serves as an inspiration to higher levels of achievement and clearly defines the Foundation’s primary strategic goal.

BE A VOLUNTEER

The National Great Rivers Museum at Melvin Price Lock and Dam are seeking enthusiastic volunteers ranging from 16 years of age and up to assist in a variety of activities.
