Pierce Butler Meadows Community Planting Day

Posted on September 25, 2017 - 2:00pm

The Piece Butler Meadows Planting has been nominated for CRWSD’s Watershed Project for the Year. With over 90 volunteers in a week’s time, 30 shrubs, 4 trees, and 1,560 native species were planted at the site. We want to thank Steve Mitrione, Professor Valentine Cadieux , Hamline University and Elementary students, Hmong Academy, Hamline Midway Coalition Board and Committee members and the Hamline Midway Residents for supporting this planting. Winner for CRWSD’s Project of the Year will be announced in January. 



This hard work and dedication to protecting and improving our lakes and the Mississippi River makes this a project to celebrate with pride. Thank you! 

Planton Movil will take place on Saturday, October 21st, 2017, 10am-12pm. For more details check out PLANTON MOVIL 
Plantón” is the word in Spanish for a sapling. It is also the word for a sit-in -- artist Lucia Monge has been using this play on words for the past 8 years to make site-specific walking forests in communities around the world! Our goal here in St. Paul is to lend our mobility to the plants and create a walking prairie, in this case. Working with the Hamline-Midway Environment Group, the Capitol Region Watershed District, and artist Lucia Monge, we will create a prairie in the Pierce Butler Storm Water Basin at the southwest corner of the intersection of Pierce Butler and Snelling Avenue.
