You are invited to watch as students from The Phipps’ River Deluxe Exploration art and science class work to transform the trash collected during the river clean-up to create a new “skin” for Scrappy, the RiverFest mascot.
The annual river clean-up is a core activity of Hudson’s St. Croix RiverFest. Community volunteers get out on the riverbank collecting trash and working to help clean-up the river (trash bags will be provided). While the goal of RiverFest is to get people out to enjoy the river, the river clean-up is the “purpose” for the RiverFest celebration.
Families and individuals are encouraged to join the clean-up. Participants are reminded to observe current social distancing guidelines during the clean-up. Please view the River Clean-up Guidelines for instructions and details.
Meet at the Bandshell for the Lakefront Park area clean-up. View a map of clean-up locations.
