Tend the native bluff prairie at Indian Mounds Park

Help tend the rare prairie at the Sand Coulee SNA [FULL]

With its tall grass and wildflowers, the Sand Coulee offers a different kind of rare beauty. With less than 1 percent of Minnesota native prairie remaining, this highly protected preserve is no less than an oasis in a desert of wildlife habitat –— a number of rare plant and animal species call the Coulee home. And with its deep prairie root systems, the Coulee also help filter pollutants from runoff water before it can enter the nearby Vermillion and Mississippi Rivers.

Plant pollinator patches at Camel's Hump Park and Open Space

Join us at Camel's Hump Park in Cottage Grove, home to beautiful river views overlooking Highway 61. Alongside FMR staff volunteers will install multiple pollinator patches throughout a section of the park. Planting in patches makes it easier for the birds, bees and butterflies to find the pollen they seek. 

As always, all tools and training will be provided and volunteers are encouraged to work at their own pace and comfort level.
