The Great River Coalition Message regarding the CANCELED 2020 Bee Run:

Together with our partners and in consideration of our community, we have decided to cancel the 2020 5K Bee Run – Earth Day Fun Run/Walk & River Cleanup due to COVID-19.

Although we are saddened by the recent turn of events, we are encouraged by your unwavering support and enthusiasm for our mission, and we hope you will continue to join our fight to protect pollinators in the future.

Stay tuned for more information regarding existing registrations.

Finally, please save the date and plan to join us for next year’s 5K Bee Run on April 17, 2021.

In following guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) has made the decision to cancel all programming and events beginning Tuesday, March 17.  This includes the annual Minneapolis Earth Day Event that was scheduled for Saturday, April 18 from 9:30 am to noon.  The annual Earth Day event will not be rescheduled for a later date due to the constantly changing landscape regarding COVID-19.  However, we encourage you to do your part for Earth Day by collecting trash in your neighborhood and posting to our Earth Day Facebook page with what you collected with the hashtag #MplsDIYEarthDay.  Let’s all do something good for the planet and encourage our community members to do the same with a do it yourself Earth Day!

The MPRB’s priority is the health and safety of our park visitors and our employees.  Even with program cancelations and building closures, our parks and trails are still available for your use. Going outside and taking a walk, riding a bike or just sitting and breathing fresh air can be helpful during stressful times. If you encounter others using the same amenities, please be mindful to maintain a safe, appropriate distance.
