Rambling River Park is a beautiful 76-acre park located in Farmington bordered on the south and east by the Vermillion River. The Vermillion River is a major Mississippi River tributary and provides a portion of the water that feeds drinking water wells in Hastings.
Volunteers will work closely with Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) staff and fellow volunteers to remove and haul buckthorn from this important site on August 15, from 6-8 pm. Buckthorn is extremely hardy and able to thrive in a variety of soil and light conditions. It out-competes native plant species that are vital for increased habitat and biodiversity.
No experience is needed and all are welcome! All tools, gloves and training will be provided. To learn more and register, visit https://fmr.org/events/2019/08/15/restore-farmingtons-rambling-river-park
