Tend the pollinator gardens at Camel's Hump Park

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Friends of the Mississippi River

Camel's Hump

Join Friends of the Mississippi River on June 16, 6-8 pm for this summer work night at Camel's Hump Park and Open Space as we return to this stunning site with expansive bluff-top views of the Mississippi River Valley. We'll tend to the volunteer-planted pollinator patches - small gardens that provide much-needed concentrated habitat and resources for pollinators, birds, and other wildlife. Volunteers will also help with garlic mustard removal in other parts of the site.

All are welcome, but capacity is limited and registration is required. As always, all tools and training will be provided and volunteers are encouraged to work at their own pace and comfort level. Learn more and register at https://fmr.org/events/2022/06/16/tend-pollinator-gardens-camels-hump-park

Mission Statement

Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) advocates a new vision for the Mississippi, especially the river and its watershed in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Through active leadership and education, Friends seeks to preserve and restore the river's fish and wildlife, its vital floodplains and scenic bluffs, its natural and cultural treasures, its beauty and its romance. We envision a river on which small boats are safe and welcome, to which we have clear and easy access and in which we can safely swim and fish. We envision a river that is cleaner, healthier, more alive and more inviting, a river no one can ignore or take for granted.

Description

Friends of the Mississippi River works to protect and enhance the Mississippi River and its watershed in the Twin Cities metro area.

We are proud to work with roughly 3,000 volunteers a year. We keep volunteering simple, fun and satisfying -- there are no applications, and you can sign up for one event or several. We list events that are especially in need of volunteers here on VolunteerMatch.com, but maintain a full calendar of 60+ events a year at www.fmr.org/events.

Our project work includes conservation and restoration of natural areas and habitat, education on watershed protection issues, and organizing activities that connect the public to the Mississippi River.
