Last weekend members of the Dubuque community hosted Earth Day Weekend Cleanup of the Port of Dubuque. Nearly 40 members of the Loras College Football team were present to volunteer at the event.


The Duhawks put on their work gloves and vests for more than two hours on Saturday, April 21 to clean the Port of Dubuque, making sure to get in the bushes and close to the river's edge. Other areas involved in the cleanup were the Ice Harbor Peninsula and river walk.



The event was coordinated through the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium and the Keep Dubuque County Clean & Green Committee. Other sponsors included Sustainable Dubuque the Dubuque Metropolitan Area Solid Waste Agency.
