Wild Ones Summer Tuesdays at Lake Nokomis
Share and expand your native plant enthusiam by gardening at the Nokomis Naturescape (NN) on the 3rd Tuesday of the month - June 18th, July16th and August 20th from 6 pm –8 pm
If you like, come early and bring a picnic to enjoy by the lake.
Julia Vanatta will lead her Historic Nokomis Naturescape Walking Tour at 6pm, sharing a bit about changes to the landscape since early settlement as we see what's blooming.
Afterwards we’ll get our hands dirty with garden weeding and planting. The evening will be topped off with a lakeside sunset. A lovely way to contribute to the beauty of the park.
Wild Ones Twin Cities has adopted the Nokomis Naturescape (NN) as its native plant landscaping project.
Located on Lake Nokomis at 5001 East Nokomis Parkway, Minneapolis 55417, the Naturscape is a project of the Nokomis East Neighborhoos Association (NENA) in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. The four-acre native planting, provides a model of sustainable landscaping and is an official Monarch Waystation and National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat site.
