Week of April 8, 2018

The Mahtomedi Garden Club generously awarded us another grant.  This year it is to help with the vegetative plantings in the soon-to-be redesigned Birch Easement swale.  The plantings are needed to prevent erosion and reduce pollution by trapping leaves, sediments, nutrients and chemicals before reaching White Bear Lake. The goal is to create a more “wild” site with minimal maintenance plantings (sedges and dogwood) that thrive in this leafy, intermittent wet/dry area while crowding out invasive weeds. The members have even offered their help in planting the area.
 
Thank you Mahtomedi Garden Club and all your members who donate their time and energy to make our communities that much better!
