Located just 20 minutes south of St. Paul, Pine Bend Scientific and Natural Area (SNA) is home to some of the best views of the Upper Mississippi River and is a welcome respite from the bustle of the cities.
After a short hike volunteers will work closely with Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) staff to remove the invasive species garlic mustard. Volunteers should be able to see a big difference in just a couple hours of work. Removal of this invasive species is the perfect restoration activity for volunteers who want to work independently.
Event participants will be offered the opportunity to sign up to make their Pledge to Pull, promising to return and continue to remove garlic mustard at Pine Bend SNA in the weeks following this evening’s pull.
All are welcome, however, space is limited and registration is required. To learn more and register, visit https://fmr.org/events/2018/05/10/pledge-pull-garlic-mustard-pine-bend-bluffs-sna.
