Welcome to the East Harriet Neighborhood
East Harriet is bordered by 36th Street on the north and 46th Street to the south. Lyndale Avenue is the eastern boundary; Lake Harriet and Lakewood Cemetery largely make up the western border of the neighborhood. In addition to these Minneapolis landmarks, Lyndale Park Gardens and Rose Gardens, the Thomas Sadler Roberts Bird Sanctuary are located within East Harriet. Many houses in the neighborhood are two-story homes, set back from the streets.
Sale-O-Rama June 2
Each year East Harriet has sponsored a neighborhood garage sale on the 3rd Saturday of May, however, there has been a lack of participation the last few years. We are reviewing whether to change the sale to a different weekend or discontinue the sale all together. The new proposed date is the first Saturday in June which is June 2 this year.
East Harriet will collect the sale information including addresses and a list of general & specific items to create a map which will be posted on our website, facebook, Craigslist and in our eNews.
If you are interested in participating or would like to see Sale-O-Rama continue, would you provide feedback in the following short 3 question survey?
Based on the number of responses, we will decide on whether to hold the sale this year.

Audubon Chapter of Minneapolis to Host Bird Collision Expert
Wednesday, April 18
Beth El Synagogue, 5225 Barry St., St. Louis Park, MN
Hosted by Audubon Chapter of Minneapolis
Dr. Christine Sheppard, one of the world’s foremost authorities on bird collisions, and the Bird Collisions Campaign Manager for American Bird Conservancy, will speak on “Why Birds Collide with Glass and How We Can Stop Them” .
The presentation will discuss how strategies for retrofitting large glass features to make them more bird-safe can be used at the U. S. Bank Stadium. It is the second of three presentations to be given as part of the Stadium Retrofit Committee’s effort to convince the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority to retrofit the U. S. Bank Stadium. A $5 donation will be requested at the door to defray costs. For questions, visit the ACM website at www.AudubonChapterofMinneapolis.org.
The Stadium Retrofit Committee is a coalition of the Audubon Chapter of Minneapolis, Minnesota Citizens for the Protection of Migratory Birds, and the Friends of Roberts Bird Sanctuary, as well as other bird loving concerned citizens, who are very disturbed by the mortality occurring at the U.S. Bank Stadium.
