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 and student or scout groups – to celebrate Earth Day and contribute to the health and vitality of the Mississippi River. All are welcome! This is a family-friendly event providing an excellent opportunity to get outside and work together to help improve this treasured area. We've returned to this site year after year and have noticed a dramatic improvement to the area thanks to dedicated volunteers like you! 

This event is supported by the local neighborhood group, the Longfellow Community Council, and Longfellow area residents are encouraged to register! The event is also part of the Gorge Stewards program, which actively engages citizens throughout the Twin Cities in the stewardship of the national treasure that is the Mississippi River Gorge.


Thanks to our Gorge Stewards Program partners and funders: Longfellow Community Council, Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board, Andeavor Foundation, RBC Wealth Management, The Minnesota Environment and Natural Resource Trust Fund, Xcel Energy, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, US Forest Service, Great Lakes Brewing Company, and Sitka Salmon Shares.
