Celebrate 50th Anniversary of Earth Day with River Clean Up Event
From the Friends of the Mississippi River website: "Taking place just off of West River Parkway, this cleanup is an Earth Day tradition in the Minneapolis River Gorge. People come from throughout the local river corridor, neighborhoods and metro area – individuals, families, small church, corporate, student and scout groups – to celebrate Earth Day and contribute to the health and vitality of the Mississippi River. All are welcome! This is a family-friendly event providing an excellent opportunity to get outside and work together to help improve this treasured area. We've returned to this site year after year and have noticed a dramatic improvement to the area thanks to dedicated volunteers like you!
This event is supported by the local neighborhood group, the Longfellow Community Council, and Longfellow area residents are encouraged to register! The event is also part of the Gorge Stewards program, which actively engages citizens throughout the Twin Cities in the stewardship of the national treasure that is the Mississippi River Gorge." This is a great way to meet and volunteer with neighbors. For more info, click the link below. Photo: NASA, Apollo 11.
