Mississippi River Gorge along West River Parkway36th or 44th Street & West River ParkwayMinneapolis, MN 55406


Taking place just off of West River Parkway, this cleanup has become 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 and student or scout groups - to celebrate Earth Day and contribute to the health and vitality of the Mississippi River.

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 in the area thanks to dedicated volunteers like you!

To participate at a Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) hosted site, simply show up at either E 36th St & W River Parkway or E44th St & W River Parkway at or after 9:30 a.m. to sign-in with FMR staff. We'll provide all of the supplies, however, if you have your own gloves feel free to bring them along. Sturdy shoes are strongly suggested as well as dressing for the weather - layers are encouraged.

Registration is not required for this event.

Got a group or question? Please contact Amy at FMR for more detaills!
