Mounds Park tree planting

Join Urban Roots and Mississippi Park Connection for a tree planting event on Thursday, Sept. 27 at Burns Avenue Scenic Overlook near Willowbrook a floodplain forest that has been restored for the past five years. Organizers will be transplanting trees from community gravel bed nurseries — including the Urban Roots one at Rivoli Bluffs Urban Farm and Restoration Site — to the park in order to build resilience in forested areas that will be losing tree canopy to emerald ash borer, an invasive pest. Please note: Burns Ave Scenic Overlook does not have a specific address associated with it on Google Maps. Search using the latitude and longitude GPS coordinates — 44.946854, -93.039009. The overlook appears as “St Paul, MN 55106” when you do an internet search. It can be found off of Scenic Overlook Drive just west of Upper Afton Road off Burns Avenue. This event is free and open to the public. There are limited spots and registration is required. Register at
