Volunteers Needed to Clean Minnesota River Greenway
Minnesota Ag Connection - 05/17/2017
Environmental stewards, garbage busters and those just looking to get outside for an afternoon are invited to help clean up the Minnesota River Greenway in Burnsville prior to its grand opening on June 3.
Participants can enjoy an afternoon down by the river to help prepare the greenway for the season. Volunteers will be cleaning up the shoreline, as well as the bike path between the I-35W bridge and Cedar Avenue bridge. Supplies will be provided.
The event takes place May 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. Groups will gather at the Minnesota Riverfront Park, 600 Black Dog Road W, to start the clean-up.
Volunteers are asked to commit three hours of their time. The task may involve varying amounts of activity (long walks, rough terrain and moderate physical exertion). Comfortable, sturdy shoes are recommended.
