Mighty Mississippi Clean Up Challenge

Goodhue County is kicking off the 2024 Mighty Mississippi Clean Up Challenge, between April 15th and May 15th, 2024.

The challenge, extended to all Minnesota counties, cities, and community members located on the Mississippi River, or a river that leads into the Mississippi, will aid in tackling the growing river pollution.


Two years ago, Goodhue County Commissioner Linda Flanders helped produce a “Mighty Mississippi Cleanup” effort at Co. Rd. 18 and Sturgeon Lake Road after complaints from Welch residents.

Flanders says she is hoping the Mighty Mississippi Cleanup Challenge that runs from April 15th-May 15th, will spur communities along the river to join in with their own efforts.

The Mississippi River is #6 on the United States most endangered river’s list.
