Pollinator summit

FMR is pleased to endorse the University of Minnesota Pollinator Summit Webinar Series happening online Monday, September 14–Thursday, September 17.

All are welcome for one or more days of in-depth, research-based sessions to protect precious Minnesota pollinators. Choose whichever sessions work for your schedule and budget.

Rain garden talk + tending

Rain gardens are one way for homeowners to beautify their yard while having a direct impact on the river. Rain gardens are designed to catch rainwater runoff, helping prevent erosion and filtering pollutants. They also provide wildlife habitat, attract pollinators and are a way to bring in beautiful plants and wildflowers to your yard.

Heading outside? Pick up litter through April — #DIYEarthMonth

First, a note...

In all honesty, we weren't sure if we wanted to promote cleanups during this difficult time. But, our river communities already made this decision! Many of you are already out there, picking up trash and improving the health of our environment and the river.

As you take a break, reconnect with nature and get a little exercise, please remember to follow the Minnesota Department of Health recommendations such as avoiding groups (stay by yourself or with your household), not touching your face and maintaining a safe distance from others.
