Earth Day Clean Up
Earth Day Clean Up is held annually in April. Earth Day is a collaborative effort between the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB), Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling, and several neighborhood organizations.
The Earth Day Clean Up is an opportunity for Minneapolis’ neighborhoods, businesses and volunteer organizations to come together for a common purpose: stewardship of our City’s parks, neighborhoods and watersheds. Volunteers pick up trash and assist in cleaning up Minneapolis.
Earth Day participants cleaned up shoreline and open space areas throughout Minneapolis, including:
- The Chain of Lakes (Brownie Lake, Cedar Lake, Lake of the Isles, Lake Calhoun & Lake Harriet)
- Shingle Creek Corridor
- Minnehaha Creek Corridor
- Mississippi River Corridor
- Grass Lake
- Diamond Lake
- Lake Nokomis
- Lake Hiawatha
- Powderhorn Lake
- Bassett’s Creek
- Wirth Lake
To become involved in Earth Day activities, call (612) 230-6479 or visit the MPRB's Earth Day website.
Volunteers are encouraged to help keep Minneapolis, its watersheds and parks clean all year.
