Join us on May 10th from 6-8pm at Crosby Farm Park in St.Paul for an invasive species removal.
Nestled at the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers, Crosby Farm Park is a natural oasis in the heart of the city. Enjoy the beauty of early spring at this riverside park while helping protect native plants beneficial to our local wildlife and waters.
Alongside FMR staff, volunteers will be working in an area home to a striking array of spring wildflowers native to Minnesota Dutchman’s breeches, trout lily, and Jack-in-the-pulpit, to name a few. After a brief introduction and training, volunteers will help protect these and other important members of the native plant community by removing the extremely invasive plant garlic mustard, then pledge to return to the area to continue this much-needed work.
Space is limited and pre-registration is required, for more information please visit: http://fmr.org/events/2016/05/10/take-pledge-pull-garlic-mustard-crosby-farm-park
