Clean Up Duluth

Two Awesome Cities, One Great Lake!  Mayor Larson, Duluth, and Mayor Paine, Superior, invite everyone, as you are safely able to do so, to spend some time on Saturday, September 26 cleaning your neighborhood or favorite waterway (but at a safe social distance).

Imagine if everyone stepped outside on the same day, with a shared goal to take care of our shared waterways. We can already see it.  A community of people, with shopping bags or buckets and gloves, ready to keep Lake Superior free from litter!
