St. Anthony Park residents: help clean Kasota Ponds April 8

George Yetter, now a sophomore at Como Park Senior High School, stands with much of the garbage found at the 2015 Kasota Ponds Cleanup.













Get outside, meet your neighbors, and help with the annual cleanup Saturday, April 8, from 9 a.m. to noon.

To protect St. Anthony Park’s Kasota Ponds, volunteers gather each spring to pick up debris that would otherwise make its way to the Mississippi River. All ages are welcome. Kids, K-12 can join local entomologist Margot Monson, whose microscopes and expertise will help them discover what critters live in the ponds.

Volunteers meet at 9 a.m. at NAPA Auto Parts parking lot, 2530 Kasota Ave. (just west of the Highway 280 overpass and the railroad tracks, take a left).

Refreshments will be provided. Bring gloves; extras will be available. Reflective vests will be provided for safety. Dress for the weather. In light rain, wear a poncho and boots. If it is raining or snowing hard, the cleanup will be postponed to Sunday, April 9.
