Join Friends of the Mississippi River and Hastings Environmental Protectors for a unique island cleanup.

Spring Lake Park stretches around the bend of the Mississippi River. After meeting in the Dakota County park, where FMR has been restoring habitat for over 10 years, volunteers will be shuttled to the nearby islands by boat to pick up trash.

As always, all are welcome and encouraged to work at their own comfort level. Due to wet island conditions, waterproof knee or muck boots are highly encouraged. Bags and gloves will be provided.

Following the cleanup, a light lunch will be provided for all volunteers courtesy of Hastings Environmental Protectors.
