earth day River Clean up
East River Parkway & SE Franklin Avenue
Saturday, April 23, 2016 (Weekend after Earth Day in April)
The City of Minneapolis coordinates one River Clean Up Day that spans several neighborhoods along the Mississippi. The Prospect Park neighborhood cleans the area along East River Parkway. Bagels, orange juice and coffee will be available for the Clean Up, and a pizza lunch will be offered afterwards.
"If you are interested in volunteering, show up!" - Tom Kilton, the Chair of the Clean Up Committee.
Dozens of Volunteers & many bags of trash!
Residents are encouraged to join their friends and family for a day of service in the community. No pre-registration is required. The annual event involves picking up trash (gloves and bags are provided) in Minneapolis Parks and watersheds.
