Tree Planting at Victoria Park



Sat, October 07
9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Victoria Park, Saint Paul - Saint Paul

Volunteers Needed: 150
Supervisors Needed: 25

Continue enhancing the new park in Saint Paul’s West Seventh Street neighborhood! Victoria Park replaces an brownfield with much-needed green space, access to the Mississippi riverfront, and connections to other parks. Volunteers will be drop off to the site from the shuttle bus and hike through the park to a part of Crosby Farm Park on the river and plant trees to help build resilience and diversity of our floodplain forests.

Last fall, our volunteers kicked off this multi-year project, since then the upper bluffs trail has been completed.

Over time, more improvements will:

  • Complement the unique natural environment of the river bluff.
  • Add native plantings and rain gardens.
  • Enhance the habitat of Crosby Regional Park in the floodplain.

Partners & Funders: City of Saint Paul and Minnesota Outdoor Heritage Fund, 3M, Andersen Corporate Foundation, Capitol Region Watershed District, District Energy, Ecolab, Hardenbergh Foundation

Some considerations:

  • Difficulty – Easy & Difficult: A small, kid-friendly work area is flat and close to parking. The larger work area is somewhat steep and up to 1/2 mile from parking.
  • Snacks are provided throughout the morning and a late lunch will be served at 12:30 pm
