Help improve the forests of the Upper Arb by removing buckthorn. Please pre-register for this event!

This event takes place each month on the 3rd Saturday from December 15th, 2012 to February 16th, 2013.

9:00 a.m. – 12 noon.  Help clear buckthorn from the forests along Spring Creek. Meet at the bridge over Spring Creek along the paved trail in the Upper Arb, just down the hill from the intersection of Oak and Second Streets.

We ask that you pre-register for this event so that we can let you know if we need to cancel due to weather concerns.  Contact Arboretum Director Nancy Braker ( or 507-222-4543) to register.  We will confirm by email the day before the event. 

Can't join us right at 9:00?  We will have signs posted so you can find us at the work site.
