  • Mississippi West Regional Park 13900 Traprock Street Ramsey, MN, 55303 United States (map)

Help remove invasive species while enjoying prairie grasses and wildflowers, with wonderful views of the Mississippi River! You might be surprised to learn the Mississippi River through the Twin Cities is a national park, and this site is within that park. Volunteer to improve the habitat of this unique place and help preserve your national park.

This event is led by Mississippi Park Connection and the National Park Service who will provide necessary tools and gloves. Please wear long pants and closed-toe shoes for this outdoor project. Bring water, too, and snacks if necessary. Parking fees will be waived for volunteers.
