Pollinator patch tending at Camel's Hump Park

Camel's Hump Park and Open Space, located in Cottage Grove, is home to beautiful river views overlooking Highway 61. Join us for this summer worknight in the park as we return to this stunning site to tend to previously planted pollinator patch gardens. These patches provide much-needed concentrated habitat and resources for local birds, bees, butterflies, and other pollinators as well as help beautify this park.

Remove sumac at River Oaks Park

Just southeast of River Oaks Golf Course lies a riverfront bluff with stunning views of the Mississippi River and a special remnant bedrock bluff prairie. Unfortunately, this city park, River Oaks, is also home to a good deal of sumac, buckthorn and other invasive species. Thanks to FMR-led restoration efforts this site has been significantly improving over the past few years but there is more work to be done at this site.
