|About||Together, we seek to enhance the Minneapolis riverfront environment—for people and pollinators alike.|
|Mission||The Great River Coalition advocates for preserving, protecting and promoting the historic, commercial and environmental significance of the Mississippi River, the City of Minneapolis and its relationship to the people and their communities.|
At the heart of our mission is a dedication to bees and other pollinators.
Our flagship event, the 5K Bee Run™ – Earth Day Fun Run/Walk/River Cleanup, draws hundreds of participants to the Mississippi River each year. Held in partnership with the National Park Service and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, the annual event features educational, cultural, and recreation activities that demonstrate the importance of pollinators.
