Shrub planting along the banks of South Creek
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Friends of the Mississippi River
Enjoy a crisp fall morning on the banks of South Creek, a Vermillion River tributary, in Farmington! Volunteers are needed on November 10, from 9 - 11 am to assist Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) and the Vermillion River Watershed Joint Powers Organization with a unique planting project using live stakes, helping to fight against invasive species and create habitat for native pollinators and birds. Additionally, volunteers may be asked to help with other restoration tasks.
All are welcome, however, capacity is limited and registration required. All supplies and training will be provided. This event is part of the Vermillion Stewards program, helping Vermillion River Watershed residents learn about the local watershed while working to protect and enhance its unique natural resources.
