The Mississippi River Corridor – Tennessee cordially invites you to attend the 1st Public Meeting for the Lower Mississippi River Resource Assessment.
The LMRRA is a collaborative project that involves the Corps of Engineers, with sponsorship from The Nature Conservancy, and the Great Rivers Partnership that includes partner entities: Mississippi River Corridor – Tennessee, Audubon Society, Lower Mississippi River Conservation Committee, Delta Wildlife, Mississippi Wildlife and Quapaw Canoe Company.
The first of its kind, the study will cover portions of seven states in the Lower Mississippi River alluvial valley. Its purpose is to develop recommendations for 1) the collection, availability and use of information needed for river-related management; 2) the planning, construction and evaluation of potential restoration, protection and enhancement measures to meet identified habitat needs; 3) potential projects to meet identified river access and recreation needs.
The final study and list of recommendations will be released as a Corps of Engineers report to Congress.
Please plan to attend this important public meeting that will give citizens the opportunity to provide input for this unique Study and its recommendations to improve our quality of life in the Lower Mississippi River basin.
