    Praire Seed Collection — Murphy Hanrehan Park Reserve, MN

    Summer Trips Other Summer Activities Social and Special Events Conservation Day Trips

    Join me in helping Three Rivers Park District collect prairie seeds at Murphy Hanrehan Park. It’s easy to do and our help is greatly appreciated. From the road, a prairie looks like a field of weeds, but when you are “IN” the prairie you will discover many different flowers and plants. From the Three Rivers Park District web site: Help restore the prairie by collecting native wildflower seed. Volunteers increase the amount and diversity of seed planted annually in over 1,200 acres of restored prairie managed by Three Rivers. Learn about the prairie’s rich history and how to identify many of the plants. Youth must be accompanied by an adult.

    North Shore Trek — Cook County, MN

    Winter Trips Cross Country Skiing

    I have skied the past two North Shore Treks and am registered this year for the March 3-8 North Shore Trek. I estimate skiing 100 km in the first 2 1/2 days, followed by a day of rest (with great ski trails available), then 40 km from Bearskin Lodge to Gunflint Lodge. We could use people to shuttle cars who don’t want to ski the full distance each day.
