The mission at 1 Mississippi is to protect and inform people about the Mississippi river. Because of this news and events are the most important part of the site.
Up front you can see the top stories of the month, upcoming events and must-know facts about the river.
The biggest button on the page points you toward ways to help both at the river and in your own home. The number of volunteers is also highlighted, currently over 17,000, to show the force behind the cause.
