Seeding a New Park



Sat, June 09
8:30 am - 12:30 pm
Doyle-Kennefick - Cedar Lake Township

Volunteers Needed: 100
Supervisors Needed: 10  

Doyle-Kennefick is a planned regional park located in Central Scott County between St. Catherine and Lennon Lakes. Volunteers will help transform the 1860s homestead from farmland into prairie and restore existing savannah by planting native shrubs, releasing milkweed seeds through a “podcast,” and busting buckthorn.

This future park is currently in the acquisition and stewardship phase. Once fully acquired, it will include 1,139 acres of striking landscape including native hardwood forest, oak savanna, prairie, and pristine wetlands scattered across a rolling glacial topography. Planned amenities include a nature center/outdoor discovery center, 13 miles of hiking and nature trails, 8 miles of bike trails, picnic shelter, trail head, and renovation and re-use of farmstead structures.

Partners & Funders: Scott County, Three Rivers Park District, National Turkey Federation, and Scott-Le Sueur MN Waterfowl Association
