Cocktails for the Canopy

May 31 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Plant for the Future

The Mississippi National River and Recreation Area is home to more than 500,000 ash trees. As emerald ash borer makes its way across the park, it will kill nearly all of the ash trees that line the river’s banks. Without support, this canopy will disappear in the next decade, forever changing the landscape, river quality, natural areas, and habitat for beloved wildlife. In preparation for this new reality, Mississippi Park Connection has launched Plant for the Future, a campaign to educate the public, plant thousands of trees throughout the park, and engage young people in conservation to nurture a rich habitat for generations to come.

Support the Canopy

Spend an evening under the canopy in the Mississippi River’s national park. Enjoy delectable bites prepared by The Sioux Chef and music by Southside Aces while you sip on a craft beer by Surly Brewing Company or a special cocktail created in collaboration with Easy & Company bitters and Tattersall Distilling. Bid on experiential river-inspired items in the silent auction. Delight in mingling with park lovers coming together to celebrate and support our national park. All proceeds will benefit the Plant for the Future campaign.
