It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens

Thursday was our first youth service day, and after a quick name game and pep talk, we hauled brush along Hamline Avenue to get ready to replant the area with native trees. This area has recently had invasive species removed as well as a number of green ash trees. Funding from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Community Forest Bonding Grant will allow Parks and Recreation to plant more than 800 native trees on park property where green ash have been, or will be, removed as a part of the City's Emerald Ash Borer management program.
If you have any questions about any of the projects we're doing, please ask!
