Caring for the River is fun!
Volunteers work along the Mississippi River restoring habitat, doing clean-ups and planting native plants.

King’s Island is a new site for hosting volunteers this fall, one of two opportunities for you to explore a new corner of your local National Park! We will be managing buckthorn in the park, a project which has been ongoing for some time. We are partnering with Anoka Conservation District and Anoka County to bring you this event.
