Call to Earth Day volunteers needed Wednesday
Volunteers to work in Lions Conservancy Park
FARGO — Audubon Dakota is seeking volunteers to collect prairie seeds and clean up the pollinator garden at Lions Conservancy Park in south Fargo this Wednesday, Nov. 10, as part of the first Call to Earth Day.
The event will be from noon to 1 p.m. at 1221 El Cano Drive.
The three-year-old park is part of an effort to restore grassland and woodland areas in Fargo and Moorhead. There is about 1,000 acres along the Red River enrolled in the Urban Woods and Prairies Initiative that were idled in flood buyouts and have been overrun with non-native grasses and trees.
Call to Earth Day is a global initiative from television network CNN to engage communities in protecting the planet and raise awareness about environmental issues.
Volunteers can register to participate by emailing Meghan Carter-Johnson at email@example.com.
