July 18, 2018, Wednesday - Creekside Pollinator Tour with Minneapolis Parks Foundation

Time: 8a - 10a

Creekside Pollinator Tour

New for 2018, the Minneapolis Parks Foundation’s Walk & Talk series is a small group exploration of Minneapolis parks, curated with our supporters in mind.

You’ll bee busy discovering something new on this Walk & Talk featuring environmental educator MaryLynn Pulscher. She’ll share how Minneapolis Parks supports pollinators at many different scales, including the creation of bee habitat and flowering lawns, research partnerships with the University of Minnesota Bee Lab, pollinator habitat mapping, and how best practices are incorporated into master planning and maintenance processes. You’ll start and end at one of the city’s most stunning and pollinator-friendly places – Longfellow Gardens. In between, you’ll meander along Minnehaha Creek to Lake Hiawatha and back.

YOUR GUIDE: MaryLynn Pulscher, Supervisor for Environmental Education, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy 2.5-mile roundtrip walk on mostly paved trail
