Oak woodlands brush haul + lunch!

October 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Thanks to the support of local volunteers and a long-term partnership with 3M, Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) has had the privilege of helping 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.

On October 12, we will start the morning with a light breakfast and info session, then volunteers will head off to work in small groups with FMR Staff to help restore the oak woodlands by hauling pre-cut brush, primarily buckthorn, before we wrap things up and enjoy a catered lunch provided by 3M.

All are welcome, no experience is needed. We’ll provide the tools, gloves and training, however, registration is required. To learn more and register, visit https://fmr.org/events/2019/10/12/oak-woodlands-brush-haul-lunch
