Brush haul volunteers at 3M Cottage Grove

Thanks to the support of local volunteers and a long-term partnership with 3M, FMR has had the privilege of helping to preserve and restore the oak woodlands at 3M's Cottage Grove facility near the Mississippi River. Former invasive species thickets are now home to wildflowers and wildlife, helping to connect adjacent natural areas and form part of a green corridor in southern Washington County.

We will start the morning with a light breakfast at the meeting site (exact directions will be provided to registered volunteers) and then volunteers will head off to work with a number of FMR's Staff to help restore the oak woodlands by hauling pre-cut brush, primarily buckthorn, before enjoying a catered lunch provided by 3M.
