Volunteers to help clean-up Mississippi River during annual event

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT)- You can help keep the La Crosse area clean during an event Saturday, May 9th.

The 2020 Mississippi River Clean Up will take place Saturday morning at four different boat landings in our area.

Volunteers will be pulling trash out of the Mississippi River during the effort.
