Updates, history, and content from neighbors in and around the Wedge
Join the Wedge Community for a fun September cleanup in celebration of the 34th Annual International Coastal Cleanup Day!
We will be picking up trash and debris around Lake Bde Maka Ska and Lake of the Isles. Cleanup supplies will be provided, but to help us make this a near zero waste event, we would love for you to bring your own supplies. Please bring the following to cleanup if you have it: a bucket or plastic shopping bags to pick up trash, reusable gloves to avoid using disposable gloves, and reusable water bottle to stay hydrated.
All are welcome to this fun neighborhood event. Bring your friends, neighbors, and families!
Coastal Cleanup Day
Saturday, September 15th
Meet on The Mall adjacent to the Walker Library (2880 Hennepin Ave)
About Coastal Cleanup Day: Hundreds of thousands of individuals volunteer on International Coastal Cleanup Day every year. Volunteers around the world pick up trash and debris around lakes, rivers, and beaches. Because all waterways are important (include all our lakes and the Mississippi!), this cleanup will be a great way to get out, have some fun, connect with your neighbors, and make a difference for our waterways.
