Working to protect the Mississippi River and its watershed in the Twin Cities area

Raingarden Shrub Planting [FULL]

Display Date: 
Saturday, April 27, 2013 — 9:30 a.m.-noon
Location: 
Crosby Farm Regional Park

Volunteers will help install native plants that not only provide wildlife habitat but help filter runoff pollution, meaning less pollution flowing into the nearby Mississippi River.

Join the award-winning restoration of Crosby Regional Park, nestled at the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers in St. Paul. Volunteers are needed to help plant native shrubs in a raingarden near the newly renovated main parking area. These native plants will help filter runoff from the parking area and path and prevent erosion into Crosby Lake and the Mississippi River, and, once established, increase the amount of wildlife habitat in the park.
