Join Friends of the Mississippi River, Flint Hills Resources and Great River Greening as we return to the Flint Hills property within the Pine Bend Bluffs Natural Area along the Mississippi River — one of the largest and most diverse native ecosystems left in the metro area. The site is only accessible to the public for special events such as this.

This award-winning restoration project includes a sand-gravel prairie, oak savanna and oak forest plant communities. Pine Bend is part of the Mississippi River migratory bird flyway — host to 40 percent of North American waterfowl and millions of migratory songbirds.

This year, we'll be working to restore the oak forest area above the Mississippi River. Working with FMR and Great River Greening ecologists and staff, volunteers will remove invasive species — helping to stack pre-cut buckthorn brush — and assist with other restoration tasks. 

For security purposes, all volunteers must be 15 or older and include a full current address with their registration.

All tools and supplies -- including coffee, morning snacks and a hot lunch -- will be provided.

The location is roughly 25 minutes south of Mpls/St. Paul and 15 minutes west of Hastings. All registrants will be emailed directions to the meeting spot along with all other event basics.
