The Frontenac State Park Association has finished their project that intends to restore habitat in sections of the park with oak savanna. On a misty morning in October, volunteers planted the final nine trees. This closes out a season-long initiative that included planting oak and maple trees and native forbs, installing tree cages, and watering the plants to ensure their survival.
This project was funded by the Parks & Trails Council of Minnesota, using pass-through funds from the Henry S. Crosby Foundation. The Frontenac State Park Association garnered local funding support from the Frontenac Sporstmen’s Club and volunteer time from the Association’s membership.
