Join Friends of the Mississippi River, the Lower Phalen Creek Project, Bravely Be, the City of St. Paul and other community organizations to celebrate the continued restoration of Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary and Indian Mounds Park!
This National Public Lands Day event is both a celebration of community and conservation. After morning coffee and sign-in, participants will divide into and work in teams to restore habitat in both Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary and at the Indian Mounds Park overlook above. After the restoration outings, lunch will be provided, featuring local fare and a vegetarian option, as well as music from the Arborators!
Habitat restoration activities will include planting native species, sowing seeds, picking up trash and other tasks. FMR’s Katie Clower will lead one of the work groups to plant shrubs at the historic Indian Mounds Park overlook. (Volunteers will begin with a 15-minute uphill walk from Bruce Vento.) While most known for its beautiful river vista, the overlook is also home to an exciting restoration project. Since 2011, FMR has been working with Saint Paul Parks & Recreation, local volunteers, and students from nearby Harding High Earth Club to remove invasive species and restore the native bluff prairie at this historic St. Paul icon.
This event is being coordinated by Bravely Be! Get all the details and sign up via Bravely Be’s event and registration page: http://www.bravelybe.com/register
