Earth Day events

This year there are many opportunities to get involved with Earth Day in the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas including park hosted cleanups and building awareness.
According to the Minnesota Daily Saturday was the start to next weeks' volunteer opportunities as it was Minneapolis's annual Earth Day Clean Up. Members of the community gathered in 40 locations as a part of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board's largest annual community-service event.
The Earth Day Clean Up has been successful in getting the help of thousands of volunteers, including University of Minnesota students, and picking up thousands of pounds of trash around the city according to the Minnesota Daily.
Throughout the week of April 18 multiple parks and centers are inviting volunteers for snacks before getting to work on cleaning local areas reported the Star Tribune. The Dodge Nature Center in West St. Paul/ Mendota Heights is one place of opportunity to participate in Earth Day.
Even after Earth Day (April 22) has passed volunteers can still find places to help contribute to nature, including Farmington's annual Earth Day and Arbor Day event on April 30, where participants can help clean ponds and parks and kids can learn from a visiting naturalist reported the Star Tribune. Visitors are able to get free tips from attending these events.
