Join Mississippi Park Connection at Katharine Ordway Field Station near the Mississippi River to help with invasive plant management, followed by a guided hike to the river with a park ranger. We may turn this into a snowshoe hike, weather permitting! These lands have been set aside by Macalester College for biological and environmental education, research, and the protection and management of natural environments. This event grants you exclusive access to this uniquely protected area.
This event would be great for adults and kids over 12 years old. No experience needed. This is a free opportunity for volunteers - your only ticket is your service to the river! Space is limited and registration is required.
