Are you or your organization looking for a way to give back to the community?
The Minnesota Department of
Natural Resources offers an Adopt-a-River program help keep the shorelines
along rivers in Minnesota clean.
Here are a few things to know about the program and how to get involved:
- Individuals, families, students, services groups, businesses and others can get involved.
- To register for a shoreline you would like to adopt, fill out a form on the Minnesota DNR website to register. If you register for a piece of shoreline, the individual or group needs to do an annual cleanup two years in a row.
- Participants can receive a free cleanup/organizing kit, bags, gloves and other support, according to the DNR website, including how to document your cleanup efforts.
Since 1989, volunteers have removed more than 76 millions
pounds have been removed from Minnesota’s public waters, according to the Minnesota DNR.
