In addition to being beautiful, Ravine Park’s dramatic natural features play an important role in water quality, helping to filter pollution from post-rainstorm runoff that would otherwise enter the Mississippi River.
Volunteers are needed on Saturday, October 20 from 9am – 12pm to help Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) haul out pre-cut brush, primarily buckthorn, to make way for native plants that originally called this park home. No experience is needed, however, registration is required. All tools, gloves and training will be provided. Participants should be prepared to work on uneven terrain. Entry to the park, normally $5, is free for participating volunteers! Concluding our hauling efforts, FMR will also provide lunch.
