Volunteers clean up trash in Saint Paul

On a made-to-order spring morning, almost 150 people showed up at Harriet Island in Saint Paul on Saturday, April 18 to help with the annual Citywide Cleanup. Conservation Corps Youth Outdoors (YO) crews scattered throughout the city to help lead the effort at six cleanup sites, which collectively hosted 1,000 volunteers. The two crews at Harriet Island shared their knowledge of garbage with the volunteers before they headed out to pick up trash. Volunteers also enjoyed Dunn Bros. coffee and Granny Donuts while Len Price, executive director, and Anne Hunt, Saint Paul environmental policy director thanked them for their efforts. The Corps partnered with the City of Saint Paul on the cleanup this year, hosting the Harriet Island site.
