Arboretum and Northfield Community
Periodic Commitment

Adopt-a-River is a program that works in collaboration with SOPE (Student Organization for the Protection of the Environment) to help clean up trash in and along Northfield’s Cannon River bi-annually (once each in fall and spring terms). The Cannon River is in need of this service because it flows right through a residential area and picks up a large amount of trash along the way.
