Indian Mounds Park is home to one of the most photographed river views in the metro area. The iconic overlook is also home to a restoration project providing much-needed habitat and biodiversity while protecting the bluff, the views and local water quality.
Volunteers are now needed to lend a hand working with Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) and Saint Paul Parks & Recreation staff to tend to native prairie plants. By removing invasive species and assisting with other tending tasks, volunteers will help the plants thrive and make it through the summer. Thanks to their deep roots, the prairie plants help anchor the steep bluff soil and filter pollutants carried to the bluff by stormwater. They will also provide important bee, butterfly and bird habitat.
Join FMR on June 19, from 6-8pm. Please wear sturdy shoes and be prepared to work on steep and uneven terrain. All are welcome, but capacity is limited and registration is required. As always, all tools and training will be provided and volunteers are encouraged to work at their own pace and comfort level.
