Bee With Us!
Thanks for joining us for the 5K Bee Run or Walk, and Earth Day River Clean Up, in the only National Park offering scenic views along the great Mississippi River. The race began in the 40-acre Boom Island Park, the most historic areas of the city, and one of the most natural, scenic, and native habitats in Minneapolis.
Join the Great River Coalition, a 501 c3, nonprofit organization, sponsor of the 5K Run/Walk, Earth Day River Clean-Up along with the National Park Service, and the Minneapolis Parks, voted the number one park system in the United States!
Help save our bees and their habitat by participating in a National movement!
“Our bees (all of them, honey and wild bees), need good clean food (flowers)! Lots of flowers that grow over the growing season will help bees have good nutrition, immunity, and health.”
