Plant shrubs at Heritage Village Park

Saturday, May 18, 2019, 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Located just 15 minutes south of downtown St. Paul in Inver Grove Heights, Heritage Village Park is a 50-acre site along the banks of Mississippi River. In 2005, Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) wrote a natural resource management plan to help guide restoration of this former rail yard. Today, the park has over 30 acres of restored, native prairie, as well as areas of floodplain forest along the Mississippi River.
Join us for a morning of planting on Saturday, May 18, from 9 to 11 am. Long-term restoration will include removal of invasive shrubs in the floodplain forest, as well as the addition of native bur oak trees to the prairie area. This work will help to return the site to oak savanna, its historic natural community. Oak savanna is one of Minnesota’s most imperiled habitats, occurring one one-tenth of one percent of its historic coverage.
All are welcome, however, space is limited. No experience is needed, all tools, gloves and training will be provided. To learn more and register, visit https://fmr.org/events/2019/05/18/plant-shrubs-heritage-village-park
