Friends of Lake Hiawatha Action Teams and Leaders
We have simple actions you can take to help out with each of our Action Teams.
Lake Clean Ups Team – contact Penny Fuller to get involved – every Saturday in the spring, summer and fall, we meet at 9am at the Lake Hiawatha Park Building to clean up trash from Lake Hiawatha on foot and in kayaks.
- Simple Action – Mark your Calendar for our Earth Day Clean Up Saturday April 21 2018 9am to Noon at Lake Hiawatha with the MCWD and MPRB
Pipe Mitigation Team – contact Sean C to get involved – volunteers working with the City of Minneapolis and MPRB to win approval of a open channel filtration system that will filter out trash and other contaminants flowing out of the large storm sewer pipe that enters directly into the Lake through the 43rd Street Pipe –
Watershed Friendly Yards & Streets Team – contact Roxanne Stuhr, Master Water Steward to get involved – we are a shared committee of the Friends of Lake Hiawatha and the Standish Erickson Neighborhood Association – Because all most of our yards and streets in SENA, Corcoran and Powderhorn drain directly into Lake Hiawatha with no filtering it is important that we practice watershed friendly yard care and prevent trash, leaves and grass clippings from flowing down our storm drains during rain events.
Simple Actions you can take
- Join us for our next street clean up – Sat Nov 5 – 2 to 4pm at Roxanne’s House
- Adopt your Storm Drain – become an official adopt a drain volunteer with the City of Minneapolis
