2010 Earth Day Cleanup

About 3,000 volunteers joined the annual Minneapolis Earth Day Cleanup on April 17, 2010, and almost 300 of that force volunteered at Friends of the Mississippi River's two locations in the river gorge. Volunteers removed over 15,000 pounds of trash from sites throughout the city - that's 15,000 pounds of trash that won't end up in the river! Thank you to all the volunteers who helped give the city a good spring cleaning!

Thanks to program partners and sponsors Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board, National Park Service, Longfellow Community Council, Peace Coffee, and Parkway Pizza!

Thank you also to volunteer photographer Ami Thompson who took the following photos:
