June 23, 2018, Saturday - Mill Ruins Park Volunteer Habitat Restoration with the National Park Service

Looking for something fun and rewarding to do on a Saturday morning? Consider joining a volunteer crew for habitat restoration activities with the National Park Service (NPS), in partnership with Mississippi Park Connection, in Mill Ruins Park.

Typical NPS Mill Ruins volunteer activities include invasive species removal, occasional planting, and caring for native species that have been planted by other volunteers.  

These drop-in volunteer events will take place at Mill Ruins Park from 9am-12pm on the following Saturdays throughout the summer and fall:

June 23 - July 14 & 28 - August 11 & 25 - September 15 & 29 - October dates TBD

Sign in will be at 9 AM in front of the St. Anthony Falls Visitor Center. Gloves, tools, and instruction will be provided. Volunteers should bring a water bottle, sunscreen, sturdy shoes, and clothes that can get dirty. Chat with a ranger or NPS volunteer crew leader, play in the dirt, and feel good knowing that your efforts are helping to improve the national park in our backyard!

Questions? Contact Ranger Erin Steinhibel at Come join an award-winning team of volunteers in their restoration adventures!
