Come to Doyle-Kennefick Park (4150 235th Street East, Elko New Market) on September 15 to help plant native shrubs and flowers along the shoreline to restore the wetlands on this planned regional park, located in central Scott County between St. Catherine and Lennon Lakes.
This future park is currently in the acquisition and stewardship phase; once fully acquired, it will include 1,139 acres of striking landscape, including native hardwood forest, oak savannah, prairie, and pristine wetlands scattered across a rolling glacial topography.
Light breakfast, snack, and lunch provided. All ages welcome; children must be supervised. Pre-registration is required, so sign up today at GreatRiverGreening.org/vol-events/ or by calling May at 651-272-3993. This project is a partnership among Scott County, Three Rivers Park District, Great River Greening, National Turkey Federation, and the Scott-LeSueur Waterfowl Association.
