2021 Fort Snelling National Cemetery Wreath Clean-up

Pre-Registration Required For COVID-19 Protocols

Started by the legacy Kaposia Chapter of the Totanhan Nakaha Lodge, the annual Ft. Snelling National Cemetery Wreath Clean-up is one of the largest service projects undertaken in Northern Star Scouting each year. Held the first Saturday in February (this year, Saturday February 6, 2021), the project consists of removing wreaths and holiday decorations from memorials on the grounds of the Ft. Snelling National Cemetery. Although led by the Totanhan Nakaha Lodge of the Order of the Arrow, the event is open to Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturers, and the public. We are excited to announce that the Totanhan Nakaha Lodge has been given the go-ahead to implement the clean-up effort in 2021!


Event will run from 9AM to 12PM on Saturday February 6th, 2021.


Fort Snelling National Cemetery, adjacent the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport. In vehicle check in will be offered this year to help maintain social distancing. Further information will be communicated as the final COVID-19 preparedness plan is confirmed.


In order to provide updates to participants ahead of the event, as well as assist in designating pre-assigned work areas, we are asking that all participants pre-register for the event. The registration will be finalized once the COVID-19 preparedness plan has been approved. Once arriving on-site, you will receive an assigned working area for the event. Social distancing best practices and gather size limitations will be adhered to throughout the event. At this time, we are asking prospective volunteers to be prepared to be placed in cohorts of up to 15 individuals, as well as understand that additional participants or walk-ins may be turned-away if capacity limits are reached.


Free! This event is offered at no cost to the participant. Patches will be provided as a recognition for taking part in the clean-up effort.
