September 23, 2017, 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 the National Park Service (NPS) volunteer crew for habitat restoration activities 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. 

There are two remaining Saturday drop-in volunteer events this year at Mill Ruins Park, 9am-12pm: September 23 and October 14

Gloves, tools, and instruction will be provided. Volunteers 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 Per Erin, "We are so proud of our volunteers - they even won an award from the Minneapolis Park Board last season because of all their hard work!"
