Our goal is to create a Pollinator Pathway beginning in Minneapolis, with plans to develop a coalition of partners and work to extend the pathway from the headwaters of the Mississippi at Lake Itasca to the Gulf of Mexico.

The Great River Coalition 5K Bee Run/Walk and River Clean-Up is drawing attention to the plight of our pollinator friends and

  • Bringing people and attention to one of our greatest assets, the Mississippi River and the
  • Mississippi National River & Recreation Area, the only National Park on the Mississippi River;
  • Providing an opportunity to enjoy the Minneapolis Mississippi Riverfront environment;
  • Supporting our goal of creating a Pollinator Pathway of critical habitat ALONG OUR GREAT RIVER.
