      Note: The time of the event is 9 am - 12 pm Central Time.

      In 1988, neighbors joined together to save a large parcel of land from development on the north and east sides of Cedar Lake in Minneapolis. Seeking out and inviting all interested parties to participate, the group focused on a vision-to establish a nature park in the heart of the city-and adopted a set of organizational principles for Cedar Lake Park. The Park is open for all to enjoy and makes it possible to commune with nature in the city.

      Volunteers will work outdoors on clearing and lining trails, removing buck-thorn and other invasive plant species, general planting, etc. Dress for the weather and if possible, bring work gloves.

      All ages welcome but adults supervise younger children.  In terms of weather will work in a light drizzle but not if raining hard or storming.
