Minnesota River Greenway - 5.10 Minnesota River Greenway Cleanup - 35W Bridge - CANCELLED


General Description

The Minnesota River is an important waterway in Minnesota that flows into the mighty Mississippi River. Unfortunately, it is also a massive waterway for trash and other junk to make its way downstream. We will be cleaning up the shoreline as well as the bike path in between the I-35W Bridge and the Cedar Avenue Bridge. Enjoy the afternoon by the banks of the river and help prepare one of our beautiful biking green-ways for the season.  Supplies will be provided.
