Audubon Park Neighborhood is Challenging All Northeast Neighborhoods to:

The Northeast Storm Drain Challenge is On!!

Here in NE, all of our storm drains go straight to the Mississippi River carrying pollutants and debris with it. It's important to keep our Mississippi clean, not only for the plants and animals that call it home, but also because that's where we in Minneapolis get our drinking water from, along with millions of our neighbors down river from us.

Join us in adopting a storm drain near your house. Adopting a storm drain just means that you'll keep an eye on and clean it out with a broom and rake when it gets clogged with trash, leaves, and sand. Kids love to help and you feel like you're really doing something concrete to help our Planet and protect our water.

It's a friendly competition to see which NE neighborhood can adopt the most storm drains by the end of October. Do your part to rep your neighborhood! By this fall, we'll be able to measure the difference our efforts have made in keeping pollutants out of our Mississippi River! Go to Adopt-a-drain.org to sign up!
