America's Inner Coast Summit -- June 22-24, 2010 -- St. Louis, MO

Summit Overview

Shipping VesselThis conference builds on a recent action document developed by the Midwest Natural Resources Group (MNRG), an ‘Opportunity for Action’ letter, signed by the 14 Federal agencies that make up MNRG, dated 28 May 2009.  The letter is a multiagency statement recognizing the importance of the Mississippi River and watershed, and a call to action for sustainable efforts.

This conference will also build on the recent Visions of a Sustainable River Conference hosted by the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center in August 2009 and the recently released Mississippi River Commission Vision Statement, as well as Sand County Foundation sustainable partnership efforts with private landowners and industry.  It is expected that this Summit will lead to the next steps for greater alignment of interests and actions in the MRV.
