We would like to thank everyone who helped with this year’s clean-up. Without your hard work and dedication we would not be able to accomplish what we did at this years event. We had 39 volunteers this year, and we were able to collect 1400 lbs. of trash along the Mississippi River.
Thank you everyone!
