New Prague

Help needed to restore native landscapes at park

Volunteers are being asked to come out and plant prairie wildflowers at one of the regional parks in Scott County.

The event is not until May 18, but officials are asking folks to preregister in order to take part. Light breakfast and lunch are provided. It will be at Cedar Lake Farm Regional Park, near New Prague, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Volunteers will plant prairie wildflowers, grasses and wetland plants.

To register, visit www.greatrivergreen under “Volunteer” or call 651-665-9500, ext. 11.

Restoration started last fall, when 180 volunteers helped install 9,000 plants along 1,500 feet of shoreline.

The plants to be added this spring are also meant to help Cedar Lake’s water quality as well as help butterflies, birds and other wildlife.
