Big Sioux River Greenway Cleanup

Join the City of Sioux Falls on Saturday, October 10 from 9 a.m. to noon for the Big Sioux River Greenway Cleanup! The Cleanup will take place at 9 different locations along the Bike Trail surrounding the Big Sioux River. 

Volunteer coordinators will be at each park location with bags, maps, and gloves. All we need is you! Volunteers can stay for as little or as long as they’d like. In 2017 over 6,500 pounds of trash was removed from the banks of our river.

Storm Inlet Painting Project

Each year local artists design and paint art on the downtown storm drain inlets to boost awareness that water that moves through the storm drainage system goes directly into the Big Sioux River with little to no treatment.
