Minnehaha Creek Falls and Glen Restoration Project Open House

You're invited to a public open house to learn more about the Minnehaha Creek Falls and Glen Restoration Project.
*Saturday, March 14,* 10 - 11 a.m.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers archaeologist Brad Perkl will present information on the history of the site and what the restoration project involves. The Minnehaha Creek construction project includes the stabilization of approximately 1,390 linear feet of WPA walls, repairing failed portions of the walls and providing erosion protection for the area immediately downstream of the walls. Construction began late January and is expected to be complete by August 2009.

The open house will be outside - meet near Sea Salt Restaurant in the northwest corner of the park. Attendees will not be taken inside the construction area due to safety reasons.

The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, in cooperation with the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board, the State of Minnesota and the Minnesota Veterans Home is partnering with the Corps of Engineers on this project.
