Every year since 2008 around Earth Day in April the community gathered to clean up the parks and rivers of Menomonee Falls. Organized by the Milwaukee Riverkeepers and sponsored by Waste Management.

Thank you to all the participants that came in 2018 to volunteer: 312 participants helped clean up our rivers and parks. It is because of all of you that our rivers are looking better every year.
