Help restore Farmington's Rambling River Park

Rambling River Park is a beautiful 76-acre park located in Farmington bordered on the south and east by the Vermillion River. The Vermillion River is a unique resource that flows through Scott, Dakota and Goodhue Counties. While providing vital wildlife habitat, scenic beauty and recreational opportunities such as kayaking and trout fishing, the Vermillion is also a major Mississippi River tributary and a portion of the water that feeds drinking water wells in Hastings.

Volunteers rock spring. Join us this summer!

DeLaSalle High School Green Team volunteers

The DeLaSalle High School Green Team showed garlic mustard whose boss at Nicollet Island, our newest habitat restoration site.

So far this spring, FMR volunteers of all ages have removed truckloads of invasive species, planted hundreds of native wildflowers and trees, stenciled hundreds of storm drains and even "bombed" a prairie-in-progress (we mean seed-bombed, of course). 

And we're not even halfway through the outdoor events and outings season!​ >>

Stencil downtown St. Paul storm drains + taproom outing at Tin Whiskers Brewing [FULL]

Thank you for your interest in stenciling St. Paul storm drains. This event has reached capacity and registrations are no longer being accepted. Please consider joining us for another future event or learn more below about how to create your own stenciling outing!

After a brief introduction and presentation about runoff pollution at the brewery from FMR staff, we'll head out to the nearby downtown streets to stencil storm drains.

'Make & Take' Rain Barrel Workshop - SOLD OUT

What's one of the simplest, high-impact ways to save water and help protect our watershed? Using a rain barrel.

Lawn and garden watering typically makes up 40% of total summer household water usage, according to the EPA. Plus, the biggest threat to our waters today is polluted runoff water that runs off our roofs and into our streets and alleys, carrying all the oil, sediment and other contaminants that it picks up along the way into our lakes, rivers and streams.
