Adopt an Island

Keep it clean

Adopt an Island

In 1989, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources created the Adopt-a-River program to help clean up the growing amount of trash lining the state's rivers. Since then, Minnesota Power has joined forces with over 200 other organizations to assist in the cleanup of Minnesota’s public waterways.
It is now time for Minnesota Power to take this initiative to a new level. MP's recreation compliance requirements are now providing increased opportunities for public use on and around reservoirs and rivers in Minnesota. This increase in recreational use has put added strain on the natural surroundings. There is now a growing daily challenge to clean up the man-made garbage that is accumulating throughout the waterways.

Minnesota Power’s Adopt an Island program has been created to meet this challenge. We are seeking devoted individuals, family, friends and organizations to join us in cleaning up an island or section of shoreline to promote a safe environment for everyone. Adopt an Island program stewardship plan will include over 500 miles of undeveloped shoreline as new opportunities are developed.
