Join Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) on June 13 from 6-8 pm for this summer worknight at Camel's Hump Park and Open Space. We will return to this stunning site with expansive blufftop views of the Mississippi River Valley to tend to previously planted pollinator patch gardens. These patches are especially important as they provide much-needed concentrated habitat and resources for local birds, bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, as well as help beautify this park.
