Oak Savanna Interpretive Tour
If you hike along the river's edge along the west bank of the Mississippi River, chance are you'll stumble upon the gently rolling hills and picturesque beauty of the Oak Savanna restoration project. A sanctuary for indigenous wildlife tucked away in a beautiful niche in the middle of the Twin Cities, the oak savanna is one of the only urban savannas in the entire United States.
Join Friends of the Mississippi River and ecologist Carolyn Carr as we take part in an interpretive tour of oak savanna in the Mississippi River Gorge. The tour will include a history of this mesic prairie and remnant oak brushland/woodland, in addition to detailing the continued restorative triumphs of the Gorge Stewards program. Thanks to their countless hours, this once a buckthorn thicket now has renewed lease on life.
