Improving Water Quality in the Mississippi River with MPR

Come volunteer side-by-side with MPR hosts and staff in this event celebrating MPR Water Month. We will be busting buckthorn and other invasive plants from Talahi Woods, near Riverside Park in St. Cloud, MN.

Talahi Woods is a 23-acre oak forest, adjacent to a recreational city park. Invasive buckthorn is a threat to the habitat. It has blocked the bluff view of the Mississippi River, and degraded the soil that filters water before entering the river. Great River Greening is working with the city of St. Cloud to combat the invasive species. Success is dependent on volunteers.
