Watershed Wide CleanUP

The 15th Annual Cannon River Watershed-Wide CleanUP takes place on Saturday, Sept. 16th, 2023, 9:00 am-12:00 pm.

This is the largest one-day CleanUP event in Minnesota with over 200 volunteers working in 8 locations across the watershed from Owatonna in the south, Shields Lake in the north and Red Wing in the East. All in an effort to “Make Clean Water Happen” in Southeastern Minnesota.
