We Are River Action

Since River Action was founded 35 years ago, hundreds of goals have been achieved, thousands of volunteers energized, and hundreds of thousands of people enlisted in a shared mission: protecting and enhancing our Mississippi River and riverfront resources.

While it's satisfying to reflect on the organization's history and accomplishments, our focus remains on the issues and challenges ahead.

River Action has partnered with the Scott County Regional Authority (SCRA), the City of Eldridge and MidAmerican Energy to install four osprey platforms in Scott County.

The four locations are Nahant Marsh, Lost Grove Lake, West Lake Park and Credit Island, Davenport. The osprey platforms were installed by MidAmerican Energy in late 2018 to increase habitat for the osprey.
