Celebrate the 50th year of Earth Day at the River Gorge cleanup!

Taking place just off of West River Parkway, this cleanup is 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, student and scout groups – to celebrate Earth Day and contribute to the health and vitality of the Mississippi River. All are welcome!
