Tend the demonstration prairie at Crosby Farm Park

June 15, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Tend the demonstration prairie at Crosby Farm Park

Help tend an interpretive native prairie planted in recent years by volunteers at Crosby Farm Regional Park!

The three-acre demonstration prairie includes 1,000 native prairie plants and species markers to educate and inform visitors. Volunteers will help weed, remove invasive species and otherwise care for the planting and the surrounding areas, all under the care and guidance of FMR and Saint Paul Parks staff. 

Staff will provide all guidance, tools, and gloves needed for a healthy planting and fun event. Children accompanied by a parent or guardian are encouraged to attend.
