Pierce Butler Meadow

Seed packets

The Pierce Butler Meadow project of the Hamline-Midway Coalition aims to convert a 2.5-acre vacant lot in St. Paul, Minnesota, into a meadow that will serve as a haven for wildlife and a space for the community to connect with nature. The project involves removing invasive species, planting native wildflowers and grasses, building walking paths, and installing interpretive signs. The Coalition hopes that the meadow will provide a space for people to enjoy the beauty of nature, learn about local ecosystems, and promote environmental literacy. Additionally, the meadow will conserve pollinator habitat and improve water quality by reducing runoff from the site. The project has been supported by several community partners and is funded by grants from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and Hamline University.
