Longfellow Community Council

The Longfellow Community Council, longtime supporter of FMR's Gorge Stewards program, recently approved support of the 2010 and 2011 Gorge Stewards program! Using NRP Phase 2 funds, this support will help make another year of restoration efforts in the Minneapolis river gorge possible, with important activities like removing invasive garlic mustard from the floodplain forest near 34th Street and West River Parkway and buckthorn from the maple basswood forest at 44th Street and West River Parkway. It will also help support a third season of targeted restoration efforts by the Gorge Leadership Team.

On the snowy evening of Monday, February 8, LCC's River Gorge Committee held an open house, which provided an opportunity for community members to hear about the accomplishments of the 2009 Gorge Stewards volunteers and learn how to get involved in 2010. If you are interested in learning more about or joining the Gorge Stewards, check out the informational page for the program on the FMR website.

Thank you, Longfellow Community Council, for your continued and greatly appreciated support!
