Lebanon Hills Regional Park - 9.23: National Public Lands Day at Lebanon Hills

General Description

Give a little love to your local park. Join Dakota County staff, Great River Greening staff, and other volunteers to help us improve the health and quality of our park through a morning of fun park restoration projects. Together, we will plant and seed native prairie grasses and wildflowers to further restoration efforts at Lebanon Hills Regional Park.


This fun, hands-on, family-friendly event will give you opportunity to participate and learn about stewardship and natural resource restoration through park improvement projects. All ages and abilities are welcome. We will offer both kid-friendly activities as well as adult activities. Admission and parking are free and a thank you lunch will be provided to volunteers afterwards.
