Stewardship Fest

November 11, 2023 Category:

On November 11th Hartley will be host to Stewardship Fest, a celebration of the people and organizations that are helping to take care of Hartley Park’s natural resources and helping to make Hartley Park a better place for future generations. Come learn about invasive species from Community Action Duluth (CAD) or participate in a buckthorn pull with the Duluth Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA). Learn about native wildflower gardening from Wild Ones and get information on winter sowing. Take a tour of a stream restoration area with the South St. Louis County Soil & Water Conservation District, or see real-time data from the University of Minnesota Duluth weather stations. Learn about the Feasibility Study from the City of Duluth, and learn what partner agencies have been involved in data collection for the study (MDNR, MPCA, UMD). These Hartley partners will have informational tables set up outside (weather dependent), and will offer special tours or activities throughout the event. For a list of event partners, and activities see below. This list is not a complete list of project partners.
