Maintaining Pathways in the Park
Saturday, May 20th – 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Location: Prairie Crossing Park
Our main activity will be spreading wood mulch for the walking paths through this City of Rochester Natural Area. Minnesota Driftless chapter members have assisted with the restoration of the oak savanna at this park and itS development as a natural area since 2019.
WHAT TO BRING:
Work clothes appropriate for the event would include closed-toe shoes or boots, long pants, layers to put on or take off to stay comfortable on a spring day, leather gloves ,and perhaps a hat to keep the sun off your face. Insect repellent would be a good idea as would sunscreen. Bring a hydrating liquid and snacks to keep you energized throughout the morning.
