Spring Planting at Lilydale
Plant trees and shrubs to restore one of Saint Paul’s beautiful riverside gems – Lilydale Regional Park! Join Saint Paul Natural Resources, the National Park Service and Mississippi River Fund for an Arbor Month celebration along the floodplain of the Mississippi River. Volunteers will plant over 1,000 native trees and shrubs and take time to enjoy and learn about some of the Parks’ feathered inhabitants on a guided bird walk. All ages are welcome.

We will have portable toilets and drinking water available, but please bring your own reusable water bottles. Dress for the weather - we will plant, rain or shine!

 Drop-in Garlic Mustard Pulls
It’s that time of year! Garlic mustard, an invasive species, will be at its peak, and we need your help to remove it in the Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom. We are holding drop-in events to help us attack this pesky plant. Gloves will be available. No experience necessary—this is a great activity for anyone who loves to weed. Join us on your way home from work!

Come any time between 5 and 7 p.m., even if you can only stay for 30 minutes. Please start at the Joyce A. Kilmer Fireplace, located just west of the Como Pool on Como/Wynne Ave. There is a parking lot across from the fireplace. There will be a sandwich board sign at the fireplace with location instructions where to find us that day. We’d love to have you! 

No pre-registration required.
About Garlic Mustard
Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata)—due to its ability to aggressively spread, out-compete important native understory species, and create large monocultures, many ecologically important native plant communities are being displaced as garlic mustard spreads. This time of year, garlic mustard will flower and its seed will spread in great amounts.
