Since 1989, volunteers have removed over 6.5 million pounds of trash from thousands of miles of shoreline on Minnesota’s lakes, rivers and ponds.

Signing up is simple:

  1. Choose your favorite lake, river or pond.
  2. Register.
  3. Clean it up.

Joining is a fun and meaningful way to give back to your community and help the environment. Join Adopt-a-River today, and we will support your efforts with free bags and gloves, and advice on how to organize a safe cleanup.
