Join FMR staff and volunteers for our follow up planting event at Cherokee Regional Park – one of St. Paul's most visited parks. Last year we begin work needed to restore this historically oak savanna and maple-basswood forested bluff-top park by planting a mix of native prairie plants and will add to the planting this year. 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 run-off pollution and secure the soil along the bluff.

All are welcome, but capacity is limited and registration is required. As always, all tools and training will be provided and volunteers are encouraged to work at their own pace and comfort level.
