The 2021 Earth Day Virtual 5K Bee Run/Walk/Bike is sponsored by the Great River Coalition, the National Park Service, the Minneapolis Parks & Recreation Board, St. Catherine University, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, Mill City Running, and Saint City Running.
Support our goal to create a Pollinator’s Pathway beginning in Minneapolis, our only National Park along the Mississippi River, the plan is to extend the pathway from Itasca to the Gulf of Mexico.
“Our bees (all of them, honey and wild bees), need good clean food (flowers)! Lots of flowers that grow over the growing season will help bees have good nutrition, immunity, and health.”
