Join us on Saturday, September 17, 2016 from 9am to 12pm as we help to preserve and restore the oak woodlands at 3M’s Cottage Grove facility near the Mississippi River. Former invasive species thickets are now home to wildflowers and wildlife, helping to connect adjacent natural areas and form part of a green corridor in southern Washington County.
We will start the morning with a light breakfast at the meeting site (exact directions will be provided to registered volunteers) and then volunteers will head off to work with FMR’s Lead Ecologist Karen Schik and River Stewardship Coordinator Adam Flett to help restore the oak woodlands by hauling pre-cut brush, primarily buckthorn, before enjoying a catered lunch provided by 3M.
To ensure a high quality experience, capacity is limited and preregistration required. For more information, including how to register, please visit visit: http://fmr.org/events/2016/09/17/haul-brush-oak-woodlands
