Lynnhurst Community Center
1345 W. Minnehaha Pkwy
Our urban forest is under siege from both insect pests and aggressive non-native plant species. Dutch elm disease is still taking its toll and now the Emerald ash borer has invaded Minneapolis. Invasive plant species are displacing desirable native species in many areas, on both park and residential lands. Representatives of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board; Ralph Sievert, Director of Forestry, and Marcia Holmberg, Natural Resources Coordinator will discuss the state of our urban forest and what you can do to help restore and sustain it.
Tree Trust and other exhibitors will also be present. The Forum is sponsored by the Lynnhurst Environmental Committee and the Lynnhurst Neighborhood Association. For more information, see http://enduringenvirons.wordpress.com/ or email Lynnhurst.firstname.lastname@example.org .
