Come volunteer side-by-side with MPR hosts and staff in this event celebrating MPR Water Month. We will be busting buckthorn and other invasive plants from Valley Park, in Mendota Heights, to improve the water quality in a creek that feeds the Mississippi River. We will also be casting seed for wildflowers and grasses to further improve the soil and habitat diversity. Join in and get a limited edition T-shirt.
This 94-acre community park is largely a natural area that features a creek, oak groves, and mile-long paved trail that winds and climbs through woodlands. The mature oaks and diverse vegetation provide an outstanding landscape to enjoy hikes and bicycle tours that connect to the Big Rivers Regional Trail. This volunteer effort will improve the filtering quality of the soil, removing pollutants from water before it reaches the creek and the river.
