Lend a hand in your national park with The National Park Service and Mississippi Park Connection by restoring the land surrounding Coldwater Spring to create oak savanna, native prairie, and wetland habitats. Volunteers will be planting native plants in a restored forest understory area to increase biodiversity and promote habitat for wildlife.

Coldwater Spring is located between Minnehaha Falls Regional Park and Historic Fort Snelling. The historic Coldwater spring house sits at its heart, bubbling away and bringing in the ducks.

NEEF is sponsoring Coldwater Spring as a highlighted NPLD site this year. We will provide gloves and all necessary tools and equipment. Come out and help us plant for the future!

Volunteers must be age 10 or older and registered. This is a rain or shine event. Contact our volunteer staff for more information:
