Buckthorn removal bash with Bassett Creek Volunteers

Please join Bassett Creek Volunteers for the fall buckthorn removal in Bassett's Creek Park! Volunteers will cut, pull and haul buckthorn to make way for native plants, learn about the creek watershed, and celebrate afterwards outdoors at Utepils.

All are welcome. This is a family-friendly event with work suitable for all ages. No experience is needed.

Snacks and beverages provided at the event. All participants will receive a Utepils drink ticket to be used afterwards (tickets can be used for alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages).

Longfellow Community Council's River Gorge Festival

Celebrate the Mississippi River Gorge at the annual Longfellow River Gorge Festival!

This community celebration will include free ice cream, canoe rides, live music and more. FMR staff and our Gorge Leadership Team will lead walking tours of the nearby oak savanna so you can see the progress of recent restoration at this site.

This year, we're also celebrating the Longfellow neighborhood becoming certified by the National Wildlife Federation as the first Community Wildlife Habitat in Minnesota.
