Join us Thursday, July 19th, 6 to 8 p.m. to help protect Pine Bend Bluffs Scientific & Natural Area (SNA), an award-winning restoration site known for some of the best views of the Upper Mississippi River.

Working with FMR Lead Ecologist Karen Schik and FMR Stewardship Program Director Adam Flett volunteers will remove invasive species currently encroaching on the native prairie such as spotted knapweed and hoary allysum. Minnesota's native bees and local wildlife depend on this rare habitat. Plus, with their deeper root systems, the native prairie plants better control erosion and filter pollution that would otherwise run down the bluffs into the Mississippi River below.

As always, all tools and training will be provided and volunteers are encouraged to work at their own pace and comfort level. Volunteers should be aware, however, that an SNA is not your average park; there are no paved trails, pavilions or other facilities. All are welcome, however registration is required.
