Help pull weedy invasive plants at Riverside Park

Event Date: 
Thursday, May 9, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Location: 
Riverside Park
Volunteer pulling garlic mustard, an invasive plant.

Join us for a volunteer work night at St. Paul Park's Riverside Park. Located near the backwaters of the Mississippi River, consisting of 14-acres of floodplain forest, Riverside Park is a nature study area. Remaining in a natural state provides much-needed habitat and resources for local critters of all kinds; and serves as an oasis along the Mississippi River flyway for migratory birds. 

Alongside FMR staff, volunteers will focus on clearing out pesky weedy invasive plants, primarily narrowleaf bittercress and garlic mustard. These plants spread quickly and infest the forest floor, outcompeting native species and decreasing local biodiversity.

We'll provide the tools and training. All are welcome however, capacity is limited and registration is required.
