Crosby Farm Regional Park is the largest natural park in Saint Paul with 736 acres of floodplain forests, wooded slopes in oak forest/savanna, and natural wetlands. The park is located in the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area and also has an extensive trail system which is connected to Fort Snelling State Park and other parks. The event site is an additional extension area, east of Interstate Highway 35E along the Mississippi River corridor. Volunteers will help plant native shrubs and trees seedlings on uneven terrain to enhance the floodplain terrain and natural habitat for wildlife.
