Location: 
Ole Olson Park, Above the Falls Regional Park Minneapolis
Volunteers tending pollinator habitat at Ole Olson in North Minneapolis.

Ole Olson Park in north Minneapolis is known for its top-notch walking and biking trails and stunning skyline views, but we want it to be recognized for even more. Join FMR as we return to this riverfront park to tend an important native demonstration prairie garden along the bike trail. 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 pollution flowing into the Mississippi River. 

This event will help further our long-term transformation and commitment at this site and to the river. Although a small urban site, Ole Olson is home to a surprising diversity of landscapes, including riverfront shoreline, woodland terrace and grassland slopes.

As always, all are welcome, however, capacity is limited and registration required. We'll provide any tools and training needed.
