Pull invasive buckthorn from the best remaining metro-area example of the Big Woods habitat that once covered south-central Minnesota.
Wolsfeld Woods is a Minnesota-owned Scientific and Natural Area, set aside to protect the natural plant and animal community and for scientific and educational purposes. The large sugar maples in that dominate this 221-acre parcel should be showing their colors during this event.
The closed canopy created by the huge trees in these woods allows only the most shade-tolerant shrubs and fords to survive, and wild flowers must bloom in early spring while the sun still reaches the forest floor -all the more important we bust the early growing buckthorn!
Partners & Funders: Minnesota Environment and Natural Resource Trust Fund, Friends of Wolsfeld Woods, and Minnesota Department of Natural Resources
