Help restore the recently protected William H. Houlton Conservation Area

Thursday, May 16, 2019, 1:00 AM - 3:00 AM

Join Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) staff and volunteers for a lovely spring evening on May 15, from 6-8 pm, furthering restoration work at the recently protected William H. Houlton Conservation Area (a.k.a. Houlton Farm).
FMR staff and ecologists will provide a brief introduction to the site and an overview of how to identify and pull the weedy invasive plants we'll be targeting. By removing these species we will be making way for important native plants that have been crowded out by these aggressive invaders. Depending on the spring weather, some fence removal, trash clean-up, and other restoration tasks may be needed as well.
All are welcome, and as always, all training, gloves, and necessary tools will be provided. However, registration is required and capacity is limited.
