Join MNAEP members for a fall service event at Spring Lake Park Reserve, hosted by Mississippi Park Connection!
We will be planting a large volume of small lead plants in the prairie, which will provide excellent habitat for a number of important insects including Regal Fritillary, Monarch, Rusty Patched Bumble Bee, a federally endangered species, and Leadplant Flower Moth, a Minnesota Special Concern Species. We will provide materials, instructions, and an interpretive lesson about lead-plant and prairies along the Mississippi River. Please wear long pants and close-toed shoes for this outdoor project. Bring water too! This event is great for participants of all ages with proper supervision. No experience required! After our service event, we will have a happy hour. We will be at The Busted Nut (118 2nd St E, Hastings, MN 55033).
Please RSVP for the event here (Mississippi Park Connection Event RSVP page).
We hope to see you there!
