Trip Description

We are looking for 10 Rovers to join Great River Greening to help plant wildflowers and pull invasive garlic mustard at Westwood Hills Nature Center in St. Louis Park on Saturday, June 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The address is 8300 W Franklin Ave, St. Louis Park, MN 55426

Once a golf course, this 160-acre site is now a beautiful natural area comprised of rolling hills of big woods forest, tall grass prairie, and wetland habitat surrounding Westwood Lake. More information about the park can be found here:

A light breakfast snack and lunch will be provided! Plus all ages are welcome, but children must be supervised.

If you are able to participate, please register yourself individually on the event website (https://www.greatrivergreening.org/events/june-3-westwood-hills-nature-center/) as soon as you can. Your spot will be guaranteed when you register for the event. IMPORTANT: When you fill out the online form, enter “MN Rovers Outdoors Club” in the Group Name box. The organizers can help group us together during the event if you include our group name when you register.

They are also looking for Event Assistants and Volunteer Supervisors. These roles are separate from the general volunteers. Event Assistants will help check-in volunteers or setup lunch and hand out the food to the volunteers. When you register, select the box for Event Assistant (Registration/parking assistant/refreshment/etc/). Volunteer Supervisors help motivate and assist 5-10 general volunteers such as teaching the proper way to plant a native wildflower (a GRG staff will train them), refilling buckets of water, or help assist volunteers to first aid. No experience is necessary for either role.

Great River Greening is a non-profit organization who inspires and leads local communities throughout Minnesota in restoring the land and water that enrich our lives. As Minnesota’s leader in community-based restoration, devoted solely to stewardship, we engage volunteers on a scale no other environmental organization can match. We have worked alongside with nearly 40,000 volunteers removing invasive species and plant native trees, flowers, and grasses, at more than 300 sites throughout the state for over 20 years.
