Join Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 for an evening of distributing native savanna seed and removing invasive plants in the oak woodlands bordering the Vermillion River, a cold prairie stream in the heart of Dakota County and a major tributary of the Mississippi.
After a brief introduction and training, volunteers will help distribute 80 pounds of native grass and wildflower seed in recently cleared areas. Over the years, removing invasive plants like has cleared the way for native plant communities to return and thrive. Volunteers will help in this effort by continuing to remove invasives while seeding the already cleared areas.
All are welcome, however, capacity is limited and registration required. All supplies and training will be provided and volunteers will work closely with FMR staff. To maintain social distancing, our events will be smaller than usual. Please register right away if you are interested. Once the event is full, we will start a waitlist, and any spots that open up will be offered on a first-come-first-serve basis.
