PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED: https://www.greatrivergreening.org/events/lilydale-planting/
This 100-person volunteer event is sponsored by our generous partner, the Saint Paul Area Association of REALTORS® Charitable Foundation. Volunteers will plant native seeds and plugs along a two-acre swath of land at Lilydale Bluffs in St. Paul. Significant erosion in the area has led to degrading bluffs and poor water quality in the nearby Mississippi River. The native plants will encourage habitat recovery and stabilize the bluff soils, a critical piece to improving the bluffs.
If you’d like to register as a group (Scout Troop, employees of a company, school group, gardening clubs, etc), please contact Genna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
