Showy Demonstration Prairie Planting

October 8, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Ole Olson Park, 2325 West River Rd N
Minneapolis, MN 55411 United States
Free

Join FMR Thursday, October 8, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at our first volunteer event at this riverfront park to install a lovely native demonstration prairie garden along the bike trail. These showy flowers and grasses will not only beautify the park but provide much-needed bee, butterfly and bird habitat. And, with deep root systems that act like filters, they'll help reduce the amount of pollution flowing off our dirty streets and trails and into the Mississippi River. Space is limited and registration is required!
