Kinni Cleanup a go
After snowy weather forced the Kinnickinnic River Land Trust to postpone its annual spring cleaning event, the garbage-gathering activity was rescheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday, April 27, starting in Glen Park, a day when weather forecasters call for about 60 degrees and no precipitation. People can register for the cleanup at KRLT's website: www.kinniriver.org
