|April 20th – April 30th: Minneapolis Earth Day Clean-Up|
|The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB), along with the City of Minneapolis, invite residents to participate in this year’s Do-It-Yourself Minneapolis Earth Day Clean-Up, through the end of April. |
The Minneapolis Earth Day Clean-Up has been the city’s largest community service project for many years. Since 2008, more than 20,000 residents have removed more than 160,000 pounds of garbage from Minneapolis parks, neighborhoods, and watersheds. To keep volunteers safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19, the 2020 cleanup – during the 50th anniversary of Earth Day – is going forward as a DIY project.
Everyone is encouraged to share photos of their cleanup: a great way to show what we can all accomplish #alonetogether #mplsdiyearthday
