Minnesota Scientific and Natural Area
Sample Stewardship Project

The volunteer stewardship at Lost Valley Prairie SNA has been on-going for many years now. Led by site steward, Jim Smetana, volunteers crews at Lost Valley have been active in seed collection, invasive removal, cutting and burning brush, and similar management tasks. The sample stewardship project below shows volunteers on a brush clearing day in December of 2011.

If this looks like fun, sign up for the next stewardship project on the events calendar.
