This Event:

NMCWD is calling on community members and volunteers to help kick off the Whited Fen restoration project with a Buckthorn Bust. City of Minnetonka and Nine Mile Creek Watershed District staff will lead volunteers in removing buckthorn on the city parcel adjacent to the Whited Fen. All necessary tools, snacks, and water will be provided. Come prepared with sturdy shoes and gloves.

Following buckthorn removal, project Manager Brett Eidem will guide volunteers along the border of the fen to point out some unique plant species.
