Minnehaha Creek cleanup 2019 group photoOn Saturday, April 27, more than 65 people braved the colder weather and threat of rain to participate in the 12th Annual Minnehaha Creek Cleanup. The intent of this year’s cleanup was the pick up the Preserve – the nature area with the boardwalk and trail behind the Municipal Service Center.

Participants were divided into four groups and split among the entire Preserve area, gathering large amounts of debris, even though this area had been cleaned just two years ago. After two hours of hard work, everyone left gratified knowing their efforts are helping to preserve one of the city’s amazing assets!

Thank you to everyone who came out to volunteer this year!
