Trailside Planting [Full]

Display Date: 
Saturday, June 2, 2012 — 9-11:30 am
Location: 
Crosby Park, St. Paul

Volunteers will help install native plants that not only provide wildlife habitat but help filter runoff pollution from the park's parking area, meaning less pollution flowing into the nearby Mississippi River.

Registration is no longer being taken for this event, which has reached capacity. But you can still volunteer at and explore Crosby Park! Please see the listings for the June 13th and 16th events on our calendar!

FMR's River Gorge Stewards program won the Sustainable Saint Paul Natural Resources Restoration award in large part due to the efforts of hundreds of volunteers at this River Gorge restoration site, Crosby Farm Regional Park. Be part of this award-winning and important effort by helping plant vegetated slopes along a path near the newly renovated east entrance to the park. These native plants will help filter runoff from the parking area and path and prevent erosion into Crosby Lake and the Mississippi River.
