Restoration on Minnehaha Creek with Great River Greening

Saturday, October 13, 2018
Start Time: 
9:00am
End Time: 
12:30pm
Location: 
Minnehaha Creek Preserve, 7400 Oxford St, St. Louis Park

Volunteers will plant native shrubs at Minnehaha Creek Preserve, a multi-year development by the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District that includes a remeandered portion of the creek, new wetlands to deter runoff, and boardwalk and trails for public access.

The improvements made to this portion of the creek returned natural curves to the previously-straightened stream, lengthening it by 1,600 feet. The project treats polluted stormwater from more than 80 acres of surrounding area that previously flowed untreated into the creek, prevents erosion by slowing down water, creates fish and wildlife habitat, and connects the creek to its historic wetlands.
