2014 MINNESOTA PlayCleanGo DAY

The second annual PlayCleanGo Day was held on June 14, 2014, at ten Minnesota State Parks and three parks operated by the Three Rivers Park District. Visitors took home invasive species informational resources and a boot brush, which is a small tool used to brush off invasive species before entering and upon leaving trails and parks. We sincerely thank our volunteers and park officials for their hard work in making PlayCleanGo Day a success! We also want to thank all of our visitors for learning how to prevent the spread of invasive species!

Thank You for Joining Us on Minnesota PlayCleanGo Day!

Interested in hosting your own PlayCleanGo Day?

Please contact Susan Burks, Minnesota DNR Forestry Invasive Species Program Coordinator at or 651-259-5251. We invite you to host your own PlayCleanGo Day or Days.  While your PlayCleanGo Day can be scheduled for a time and date of your choosing, we encourage you to schedule your event to coincide with National Get Outdoors Day, the second Saturday of June.  That allows us to list your locations on our website and build on the national campaign. We can help provide instructions and resources to make your PlayCleanGo Day a success and help spread the word on how to prevent the spread of terrestrial invasive species.
