Minnesota Environmental Fund presents: Mississippi River Care and Prairie Planting: Mill Ruins Park Area

Care for our Mississippi River together, and get to know people who work or live downtown. Good for your community, good for your environment, and good for you!

You can help plant native prairie plants, pull up invasive vetch, and clean up our riverfront parks, while learning about the area from National Park Service rangers and Mississippi River community leaders.

The Minnesota Environmental Fund, your local giving partner with Minnesota workplaces, is teaming up with Mississippi Park Connection and Mississippi National River and Recreation Area to support this volunteer experience for people who work or live downtown.
