Stretch of Mississippi River in and around St. Cloud sheds its sullied history

For one city in Minnesota, the Mississippi River was just a water pathway that flowed through town. It was the place they dumped their sewage; it was the home of meat-packing plants that sent their environmental impacts downstream. They stopped the environmental damage they were doing a generation ago; now their eyes are opening to the economic and recreational opportunities of restored habitat.

@sourisfriends, does any of this sound familiar. Consider this article about St. Cloud in the Starr Tribune a must read!
