Upper Mississippi River Program

Collischan South forest restoration project

This approximately 40-acre site consists of mature floodplain forest with open canopy patches and increasing amounts of Reed Canary Grass. 

Site preparation and tree planting were planned for fall 2016, however, extensive flooding prevented the project from being implemented. This work was planned for 2017, with post-treatment weed control through 2020. 

This is a cooperative project with MN DNR Forestry.  

Funding will be provided by the Outdoor Heritage Fund, McKnight Foundation, and Aveda Corporation.
