Help us preserve and restore a rare prairie and oak woodlands at 3M’s Cottage Grove facility near the Mississippi River Saturday, October 17. We’ll kick this special event off with a light breakfast followed by a prairie nature walk (we may even collect a few native seeds along the way) — and a hayride!
After, volunteers are needed to help restore the oak woodlands by hauling pre-cut brush, primarily buckthorn, before enjoying by a catered lunch.
Sign up for the early morning hike and hayride (8:30-10:30 a.m.), the late-morning buckthorn blast (10:30-12:30, followed by lunch), or both! No experience is required and all supplies plus plenty of gratitude will be provided. However, space is limited and registration is required.
