UPDATE: This year's Minnehaha Creek Cleanup has been rescheduled to Sunday, July 27 due to dangerous high water conditions on the creek.
So many have volunteered in recent years — about 1,200 in 2013 — that the watershed district is expanding from one to three separate locations for this year’s eighth-annual cleanup. Volunteers will scout for trash along almost the entire length of the creek, which flows 22 miles from Lake Minnetonka to the Mississippi river, and around several area lakes.
The goal is to collect 3 tons of litter. Last year’s total hit 2 tons.
