Volunteer Opportunity

3 posts in this topic

Friends of The Mississippi River, Great River Greening and Macalester College are having a Wetland Planting event MAY 3rd - 9am to Noon - at the Pine Bend Bluffs on the Mississippi - Katharine Ordway Natural History Study Area, Inver Grove Heights.
99 more volunteers are needed (I'm one). To get more information and/or volunteer contact Katie at 651-222-2193. Please mention that you are not a registered volunteer, so that you can give her your mailing address to get info.

Funding for this planting of native vegetation for wetland restoration is being provided by Minnesota Environment & Natural Resources Trust Fund.

I was turned on to the FMR by the Volunteer office at the DNR.

Well, we had fun, got muddy, worked hard and met some very nice people from Friends of The Mississippi River and McCalluster College and enjoyed some beautiful scenery. We helped reclaim a piece of high-bluff wetlands back from invasive non-indigenous plant species - making for a healthier cycle of life and when the Big Wheel turns - better fishing.

Take a little bit - give a little back.

Nice job!!!
I am glad to hear it went well! I was doing some work with the forest service this weekend in the B-Dub. We got quite a bit of trails cleared and even put in a couple of latrines at the accesses so people wont just go on the ground.
