Join MCEA for our annual fall event Legally Green – happening again this year along the banks of the Mississippi River. 

Come celebrate, interact with our team, and get an inside look on the breadth of work happening to protect our air, water and health of our communities. We hope to see you Sunday, October 1st, 2023 at the beautiful Leopold's Mississippi Gardens for: Legally Green on the River.

Leopold's Mississippi Garden is a picturesque rolling lawn in Minneapolis nestled along the shores of the Mississippi River. We'll gather rain or shine: while we're planning to be outdoors during peak foliage, indoor space is also reserved.  MCEA is committed to providing accessible and inclusive events. We will provide golf carts for transportation of guests as needed. Please contact semerich@mncenter.org if you have accessibility requests.
