Ole Olson Park in North Minneapolis is known for its top-notch walking and biking trails and stunning skyline views, but we want it to be recognized for even more. Join Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) on August 28, from 6-8 p.m. as we return to this riverfront park to tend an important native demonstration prairie garden along the bike trail. This summer work night will help further our long-term transformation and commitment at this site and to the river. Although a small urban site, Ole Olson is a surprisingly diverse landscape, including riverfront shoreline, woodland terrace, and grassland slopes. We look forward to transforming the park into an oasis of habitat and respite — returning willows to the shoreline, wildflowers to the slopes and majestic oaks to the terraces – and keeping it that way.
As always, all are welcome, however, capacity is limited and registration required. To learn more and register, visit fmr.org/events/2018/08/28/summer-work-night-ole-olson-park.
