Plant sedges, wildflowers and sedges along the river gorge

Wednesday, June 26, 2019, 1:00 AM - 3:00 AM


Join Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) staff and volunteers on June 25, from 6-8 pm for a worknight along the beautiful and rare oak savanna and woodlands located just off the main trail along the Minneapolis side of the river gorge. The savanna includes the highest quality plant communities remaining in the river gorge, including a mesic prairie and a remnant oak brushland/woodland undergoing restoration to oak savanna.
We will spend the evening planting shrubs, wildflowers, sedges and a few trees helping to build a buffer of native plant populations around the prized oak savanna area and will help to re-establish native vegetation where buckthorn has been previously removed.
All are welcome and no experience is needed. All tools, gloves and training will be provided. However, be prepared to work on steep slopes and uneven terrain. To learn more and register, visit https://fmr.org/events/2019/06/25/plant-shrubs-wildflowers-and-sedges-along-river-gorge
