For the second year, the Minneapolis Parks Foundation is excited to host the Earth Day Clean Up event at Minnehaha Falls Regional Park. An estimated 850,000 people visit Minnehaha Falls each year – a high traffic park needs extra TLC. Bring friends, family, or your work colleagues along for a day outside and help us collect litter, to keep a safe and clean park for all to enjoy.

Things to bring:
We have a limited quantity of gloves, please bring your own. Trash bags and directions will be provided once you check-in.


Earth Day Cleanup is an annual event held at more than 37 sites throughout Minneapolis and is the largest volunteer effort in the City. It is a collaborative effort between the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) and City of Minneapolis Solid Waste and Recycling.

YOUR DONATION helps ensure the parks in our city remain accessible, equitable and serving everyone.
