Work-Night in Pine Bend Bluffs

Thursday, July 11 — 6:00-8:00 pm
Pine Bend Bluffs Scientific and Natural Area, Inver Grove Heights

Volunteers will learn about one of the most beautiful areas in the Upper Mississippi River Basin, Pine Bend Bluffs Scientific and Natural Area, and assist with critical habitat restoration work in this hidden gem. Ecologist Ellen Fuge will train volunteers to identify and remove invasive spotted knapweed to protect the prairie's threatened native plants, which wildlife rely upon for much-needed habitat and better control erosion and filter pollution.

As always, training, gloves, tools and guidance will be provided.

Capacity is limited and registration required. Learn more on the event page, or sign up now with Lindsay at lhefferan@fmr.org or 651-222-2193 x24.
