Pull invasive species at Pine Bend Bluffs SNA

Join us as we return to protect Pine Bend Bluffs Scientific & Natural Area (SNA), an award-winning restoration site known for some of the best views of the Upper Mississippi River.

Tend the native bluff prairie at Indian Mounds Park

Indian Mounds Park is home to one of the most photographed river views in the metro area. The iconic overlook is also home to a restoration project providing much-needed habitat and biodiversity while protecting the bluff, the views and local water quality.

Plant pollinator patches at Camel's Hump Park and Open Space

Join us at Camel's Hump Park in Cottage Grove, home to beautiful river views overlooking Highway 61. Alongside FMR staff volunteers will install multiple pollinator patches throughout a section of the park. Planting in patches makes it easier for the birds, bees and butterflies to find the pollen they seek. 

As always, all tools and training will be provided and volunteers are encouraged to work at their own pace and comfort level.
