4th Annual 2019 Earth Day 5K Bee Run/Walk/River Cleanup

  • Boom Island Park 724 Sibley Street Northeast Minneapolis, MN, 55413 United States (map)

Thank You for
Celebrating Earth Day with Us!

Thanks for "bee"ing with us for the 5K fun run/walk held in the only national park offering scenic views of the Mississippi River! This year we began the 5K with Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, National Park Superintendent John Anfinson, and Minneapolis Park Commissioner Chris Meyer in Minneapolis' Boom Island Park, and followed a course that traveled through one of the city's most historic and naturally beautiful areas.

After the 5K, we took part in an organized river cleanup, learned about efforts to protect pollinators, and enjoyed plenty of live music, entertainment, and Earth Day festivities. All paid participants received a long-sleeved tech shirt.

Save our bees and their habitat by participating in a national movement!
