Refuge Spring Clean-Up Mon. April 30

Join us for our annual Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge Spring clean-up! We will provide you with gloves, bags, and lunch afterwards.

We will meet at the Bloomington Visitor Center at 9:30 am and will carpool or caravan to the site. We will then pick up trash from about 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. At 12:00, we’ll head back to the Visitor Center for lunch.

If you are available to help us out, please contact Kristin Raveling at 952.858.0715 or kristin_raveling@fws.gov so we can plan for lunch. We hope you can join us!
