Siouxland Cleanup 2008

Saturday, June 7, 2008
Sioux City, IA, & S. Sioux City, NE

This was our first clean-up in the Siouxland area. This tri-state region encompasses the communities of Sioux City, Ia, South Sioux City, NE, and North Sioux City, SD. Thanks to a massive coalition of local partners and sponsors, it was a fantastic event. We were welcomed whole heartedly by the locals in all communities.
