Planting shrubs along the river banks

Enjoy a crisp fall morning on the banks of South Creek, a Vermillion River tributary, in Farmington! Volunteers are needed to assist FMR and the Vermillion River Watershed Joint Powers Organization with a unique planting project using live stakes, helping to fight against invasive species and create habitat for native pollinators and birds. Additionally, volunteers may be asked to help with other restoration tasks. 

All are welcome, however, capacity is limited and registration required. All supplies and training will be provided and volunteers will work closely with FMR staff. This event is part of the Vermillion Stewards program, helping Vermillion River Watershed residents learn about the local watershed while working to protect and enhance its unique natural resources. While providing vital wildlife habitat, scenic beauty and recreational opportunities such as kayaking, the Vermillion is also a major Mississippi River tributary and even feeds drinking water wells in Hastings.
