A natural oasis in the heart of the city, Crosby Farm Regional Park is nestled at the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers. Enjoy the beauty of early spring at this riverside park while helping protect native plants beneficial to our local wildlife and waters at this annual tradition on Tuesday, May 14, from 6-8 pm.
Alongside Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) staff, volunteers will help protect important members of the native plant community by removing the extremely invasive plant garlic mustard, then make the pledge to return to the area to continue this much-needed work.
Please note that we ask all registrants at this particular event to sign a Pledge to Pull, promising to remove garlic mustard in this area of Crosby Park in the weeks following this training and evening pull.
Thanks to continued volunteer efforts throughout the years, we’ve been able to see slow but steady improvement in the ephemeral patch, and have expanded the volunteer restoration work areas to include the Crosby lakeshore!
All are welcome, however, capacity is limited and registration is required. Learn more and register at https://fmr.org/events/2019/04/23/pledge-pull-garlic-mustard-crosby-farm-park
