Friends and family are welcome to participate, but must be registered to participate. Everyone will sign a photo release upon site registration. All participants will receive a free NPLD water bottle as a thank you for participating.
This is the kick off for this project that we will be featuring for the next 2 years. It is intended to be the featured volunteer project for our 20th Anniversary of the Minnesota Master Naturalist Program in 2025. We are looking to create many unique and special opportunities at this site! Come out and help us kick this off! Minnesota Master Naturalist and FWS staff will be present on site. The FWS biological staff will give a presentation at lunch of the work being done at the Rapids Lake Unit. And what the future plans and goals are for the site. Come out to learn a little and work a little! Invasive species removal of buckthorn, woody invasives on the prairie, clearing out the area around an old barn foundation. Hauling and stacking woody material for removal. We will need several photographers to help document this project. Site preparation for winter snow seeding. There will be work for people of all physical abilities that day. We will provide lunch for participants. Please let us know of any special dietary needs so that we can accommodate!
