Event Description: Bring your friends and family out reclaim the Cedar River Watershed Education Center for native plants! This Cedar River Watershed sits on a site with a rich and varied history. Part of our past is represented by the many invasive plants that, until recently, have crowded out native species around our Education Center. Join us this fall as we reclaim this area for native plants that are good for fish and wildlife. Volunteers will help shape our future by planting natives plants, removing invasive weeds, and mulching along Rattlesnake Lake. Join us to be a part of the story!
