Join CFANS, the Environmental Student Association, the UMN Forestry Club, and the city of Saint Paul for a volunteer planting event! Volunteer will plant trees in the morning, with a free picnic lunch afterward. Students, alumni, faculty, staff, families, and friends are all welcome!
This year we will plant trees at the new Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary, located along the I-35E corridor between Maryland Avenue and Cayuga Street. The city of St. Paul is partnering with Chad Giblin—scientist with CFANS Department of Forest Resources—to plant research trees.
The Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary is part of Saint Paul Parks and Recreation's larger plan for expansion of the Trout Brook Regional Trail. The vision for this site is to create a nature preserve in the heart of a heavily urbanized area. The trees we plant will contribute to these efforts.
