Fall brush removal at Cottage Grove Ravine Park [FULL - register for waitlist!]

With 515 acres of hills and heavily wooded ravines, a lake and a smattering of small prairies, Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park features a beautifully diverse landscape. A glacial tunnel valley bisects the park, featuring 80- to 100-foot slopes home to a compelling array of vegetation and habitats. The ravine ends in a small lake where people enjoy fishing, birdwatching and picnics.

Restore Farmington's Rambling River Park

Rambling River Park is a beautiful 76-acre park located in Farmington bordered on the south and east by the Vermillion River. The Vermillion River is a unique resource that flows through Scott, Dakota and Goodhue Counties. While providing vital wildlife habitat, scenic beauty and recreational opportunities such as kayaking and trout fishing, the Vermillion is also a major Mississippi River tributary and a portion of the water that feeds drinking water wells in Hastings.
