Native Prairie Planting at Cherokee Park

June 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Join FMR staff and volunteers for our first public restoration event at Cherokee Regional Park – one of St. Paul’s most visited parks. We will begin work needed to restore this historically oak savanna and maple-basswood forested bluff-top park by planting a mix of native prairie plants. These showy flowers and grasses will not only beautify the park but provide much-needed bee, butterfly and bird habitat. And, with deep root systems that act like filters, they’ll help reduce the amount of run-off pollution and secure the soil along the bluff.

All are welcome, but capacity is limited and registration is required. As always, all tools and training will be provided and volunteers are encouraged to work at their own pace and comfort level.

To sign up and receive directions to the meeting spot, contact FMR Volunteer Coordinator Amy Kilgore via the contact form (please select Amy by name from the staff list under “Category”) or at akilgore@fmr.org, 651-222-2193 x31. Please include the name of the event, your name, address and phone number and the number in your party.
