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.
