Mississippi Monday

Did you know that the Mississippi River carries more than just water?  Each day the Mississippi carries 436 TONS of sediment (dirt, mud, and other stuff that settles to the bottom of the river) down river.  436 tons equals 872,000 pounds.  This is about the same weight as the river carrying 2,180 American black bears down the river EVERY DAY!

Join us on Mississippi Mondays to learn about the remarkable river that is part of our community.
