8. Seeding and Educational Event | Redwood Falls

Saturday, October 29th, 2022 from 10:00am to 12:00pm (CT)

About

Volunteers will work alongside Great River Greening staff to plant native wildflowers and milkweed seeds to provide habitat to support pollinator activity and restore native prairie. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn about the ecological properties of the Redwood Falls area on a crisp autumn morning.  

Great River Greening looks forward hosting to more volunteer events in Redwood Falls in Spring of 2023 -- Stay tuned!

This is a family-friendly event. Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to attend. No previous knowledge or experience is necessary, we will provide the tools and training required.

Lunch will be available to volunteers at the end of the event at 12pm. 

Once you have registered via GivePulse, organizers from Great River Greening will approve your registration and you will receive confirmation. You will continue to receive event reminders as the event nears.
If you have further questions, please contact Great River Greening at volunteer@greatrivergreening.org. If the event has reached capacity, please add your name to the waitlist and you will be automatically registered if space becomes available.

If you are a minor registering yourself, you will need to provide an email address in the "Linked Survey" box so we can send a Youth Liability Waiver to your parent or guardian. If you are an adult bringing a minor, you can add them as an attendee and simply check the "Youth Waiver" box upon registering. If you are an adult registering yourself and another adult, you will need to enter their unique email address to the Attendee registration, so they can confirm their registration and electronically sign their own waivers.

When registering, you will be able to indicate if you are available to help with check-in/registration or parking. Event support roles will arrive early to receive additional instruction. After most volunteers have parked and checked in, you will be able to join a planting unit as well. We will only need a handful of volunteers for each role. We will contact you and confirm your event support role prior to the event. 

DAY OF: 

Please arrive promptly, allowing time for parking and a short walk to check-in. When you check-in, you will be divided into small workgroups and oriented to the site and restoration activities. 

LOCATION: 

Additional details and directions will be sent out in the weeks leading up to the event.
