 Drop-in Burdock Bust
 burdock Thursday, July 23 | 5-7 pm
Meet at the Joyce A. Kilmer Memorial Fireplace in 
the Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom, Como Regional Park

Have you heard of burdock? It is a big (some plants become 6' or 7' tall!) invasive plant that crowds and shades out our native species in our parks. We have been hunting it and taking it down all summer, but some of it is re-sprouting, due to its persistent nature! Find about more about burdock and how we remove it through this one minute video.

Please helps us remove the rest of the burdock in the Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom, in Como Regional Park. We are holding a drop-in event this Thursday to finish it up.

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 Memorial Fireplace, located just west of the Como Pool on Como/Wynne Ave. There is a parking lot across from the fireplace. If you come after 5, follow the lawn signs and take a short walk down the paths and find us! 

Gloves will be available. No pre-registration required.

All ages, individuals and groups are welcome.

No experience necessary.


brush hauling

Saturday, September 26, 2015
Celebrate National Public Lands Day by volunteering to haul brush in Hidden Falls Regional Park during the morning of Saturday, September 26, 2015. We'll be hauling brush for a couple of hours, and then after volunteering you can continue to celebrate our public lands by joining the festival! Saint Paul Natural Resources and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will host the concluding event for Explore Outdoors Saint Paul. More information regarding both the volunteering event and the festival will come soon.

Registration to volunteer will open in late August/early September.
