Earth Day in the City

Celebrate Earth Day by participating in the 15th Annual Minneapolis Earth Day Watershed Clean Up, Saturday, April 18th, 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.! Last year's event drew about 3000 community members who picked up 22,000 pounds of trash! 2009's event promises to be even bigger and better, with over 40 clean-up sites throughout the city. Find out more at
FMR will be coordinating two sites for the Clean Up, at 36th Street and West River Parkway and 44th Street and West River Parkway. Both sites will also feature educational presentations to learn more about topics like geology, native plants, and invasive species. Go to for more information on these two sites.

You can also support the Earth Day Clean Up by participating in the 5K Recycle Run, Sunday, April 19th. Go to for details and registration info.
