Join us for the first public restoration event on Nicollet Island! After over a year of planning, Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) is beginning habitat restoration on Nicollet Island. This will include removal of invasive species, enhancement of degraded forest areas, and the creation of new, diverse habitat, including two acres of native prairie and the re-creation of a pocket of maple forest historically present on the island.
On Saturday, October 13th, from 9-11 a.m. volunteers will dig in and begin planting shrubs and trees to increase diversity to the forest. All are welcome. No experience is needed however, registration is required and capacity is limited. All tools, gloves and training will be provided.
