The third annual PlayCleanGo Day will be June 13, 2015. In collaboration with the Department of Natural Resources and the Three Rivers Park District, PlayCleanGo encourages individuals and families to take to the outdoors and enjoy parks, trails and campgrounds across Minnesota, while supporting efforts to prevent the spread of terrestrial (i.e., land-based) invasive species.
On June 13, Minnesota state parks will also be celebrating the eighth annual National Get Outdoors Day, which encourages healthy and active outdoor fun.
Entrance fees will be waived at all Minnesota state parks on June 13, 2015.
PlayCleanGo volunteers will be on hand at nine state park locations and five regional park locations to provide information and educational materials on terrestrial invasive species.
Visitors can learn about the many park offerings as well as simple steps they can take to help prevent the spread of terrestrial invasive species on our treasured lands.

Please contact Susan Burks, Minnesota DNR Forestry Invasive Species Program Coordinator at Susan.firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
