Lop sprouting buckthorn in the river gorge

Friday, August 7, 2020, 1:00 AM - 3:00 AM

Join Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) on Thursday, August 6, from 6-8 pm, for an evening of working along the beautiful Mississippi River on the Minneapolis side of the river gorge.
We will be furthering the process of buckthorn removal at this site. Last year, we cut buckthorn branches to stack into wildlife habitat piles. While cutting buckthorn in the fall prevented a crop of berries from dropping and spreading this year, the stems have begun to resprout.
To further this restoration project, we will cut back sprouting buckthorn and bag the stems, preventing new branches from starting. We'll take the bags off in the fall as we continue to restore this area.
As always, all tools and training will be provided and volunteers are encouraged to work at their own pace and comfort level. While the worksite is on relatively flat terrain, access to the site is only by a steep staircase. Due to tools and access, this event is not suitable for small children. All adult volunteers are welcome, but registration is required. Due to COVID-19, masks and social distancing are required.
