Habitat restoration, or natural communities restoration, is an important element of public lands management. And, friends groups can play a role in restoration efforts! Our public lands are enhanced when volunteers engage in hands-on, habitat restoration projects that contribute to a land ethic. Join this webinar for a discussion about habitat restoration in Minnesota’s parks and trails.

Webinar highlights:

  • Learn about what habitat restoration is and how it shows up in DNR-managed parks and trails.
  • Understand the process for friends groups to work with the DNR on habitat restoration projects.
  • Hear from a the Sibley State Park Improvement Association about a habitat restoration project they implemented.
  • Join a Q&A session.
