Menomonee River Clean-Up Event

River cleanup cable 2019
  • Come Join us this Spring around Earth Day in April each year to clean up the Parks and Rivers of Menomonee Falls. Organized by the Milwaukee Riverkeepers and Sponsored by Waste Management.

    Everyone meets at Rotary Park off Fond du Lac Ave for registration at 8:00 a.m. and the clean-up occurs from 9:00 a.m. until Noon.

    Many locations of the River are available to clean up. Gloves and bags will be supplied.

    Return at Noon for drawing prizes and food.
    Our 11th Annual event will be held on Saturday April 27, 2019!   We are still planning on having the event.  It is a rain, snow or shine event.  Please bring boots; it may be a bit slushy out.  See you then!
    Thank you to all the participants that came in 2018 to volunteer: 312 participants this year helped clean up our rivers and parks. It is because of all of you that our rivers are looking better every year.

    Meet at Rotary Park
    on Fond du Lac Ave.
