Mississippi River Gorge Stewards

Patrick Murphy, August 13, 2014

Join Mississippi River Gorge Stewards volunteers to help remove invasive brush, including European buckthorn the invasive woody species that degrades our local native plant communities and wildlife habitat in the oak savanna and oak woodland in the Longfellow neighborhood of south Minneapolis. This area includes the highest quality plant communities remaining in the River Gorge, including a mesic prairie and a remnant oak brushland/woodland undergoing restoration to oak savanna.

Volunteers will work closely with FMR staff to remove buckthorn and other invading trees and shrubs or to haul brush to its pick-up spot. Tools and gloves will be provided. However, be prepared to work on steep slopes and uneven terrain. Due to the tools and terrain, this event is not suitable for small children.

This event is part of the Gorge Stewards program, which actively engages citizens throughout the Twin Cities in the stewardship of the national treasure that is the Mississippi River Gorge. Ready to register? To ensure a high-quality experience, capacity is limited and preregistration required. Minors are welcome to participate with a parent or guardian.
