National Public Lands Day

Come celebrate National Public Lands Day with the Friends of the Mississippi River. Help pick up litter along the Vermillion River during the lower water levels of autumn, helping to beautify this trophy trout stream. The clean-up event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 29, at CP Adams Park in Hastings.

Volunteers will be picking up in areas near lakes and wetlands that feed/border the Vermillion River just south of downtown Hastings. The park is known for both its recreational activities, such as its disc golf course and paved trails, and high-quality natural areas.

To ensure adequate supplies (including lunch) pre-registration is required. To learn more or sign up, contact Katie at or 651-222-2193 x23.
