Earth Day Clean-Up in Columbia Heights
April 22 @ 8:30 am
Two local civic groups, HeightsNEXT and the Columbia Heights Lions, will partner for an Earth Day cleanup along University and Central Avenues to brighten city streets and prevent trash from polluting the Mississippi River. Local Columbia Heights/Fridley Kiwanis Club and Key Club members will provide coordination and volunteer support.
Volunteers from the community are invited to join at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 22, in the parking lot of Murzyn Hall, 530 Mill St. NE, Columbia Heights. Bags, gloves, safety vests and trash pickers will be provided by the City of Columbia Heights. A group photo will be taken to commemorate the team’s work. After volunteers complete their cleanup assignments, they are invited to meet at Huset Park West to clean up trash in the park, return equipment and enjoy light refreshments until 11:30 a.m. The cleanup will occur “rain or shine,” so participants are advised to dress for the weather. Businesses along Central Avenue will be invited to join. To volunteer, email HeightsNEXT@gmail.com.
