Minnesota Plant Communities and Pollinators - Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Friends of Maplewood Nature and the Maplewood Nature Center by attending the February talk on plant communities by Ron Bowen of Prairie Restorations at the Maplewood Library. Despite the cold weather we had a great turnout. Thanks also to Ron Bowen for sharing his expertise with us that evening.
The Friends of Maplewood Nature is proud to be a sponsor of the upcoming Outdoor Family Expo at the Maplewood Community Center on Saturday, April 18th. For more information on the Expo, contact the nature center at 651-249-2170 or visit their website at www.maplewoodnaturecenter.com.
