Heading outside? Pick up litter through April — #DIYEarthMonth

First, a note...

In all honesty, we weren't sure if we wanted to promote cleanups during this difficult time. But, our river communities already made this decision! Many of you are already out there, picking up trash and improving the health of our environment and the river.

As you take a break, reconnect with nature and get a little exercise, please remember to follow the Minnesota Department of Health recommendations such as avoiding groups (stay by yourself or with your household), not touching your face and maintaining a safe distance from others.

Become an FMR SuperVolunteer!

Four different versions of the SuperVolunteer shirt on display at the 2019 Crosby Farm Park tending

Our SuperVolunteers show up with helping hands to at least four events per year. This year at our Crosby Farm Park tending, we spotted four different versions of the t-shirt we send to these loyal volunteers.

If you've been to an FMR event, you've likely encountered a SuperVolunteer proudly clad in an identifying t-shirt. There's still time to join their ranks! Just volunteer at four or more hands-on restoration events (or contribute 20+ hours) this year. We've got plenty of upcoming events in need of helping hands. Sign up so you can earn your 2019 SuperVolunteer status.  >>
