From the Ground Up — Restoring the Preserve for Future Generations and Wildlife
County Grant Prepared by the Friends of Cullen Awards the City of Minnetonka with $25,000 to Restore Five Acres of the Preserve
We just learned that the grant application prepared by the Friends on behalf of the City of Minnetonka was recommended for approval by the grant committee to the County Board. If approved by the board, the City of Minnetonka will receive $25,000 from Hennepin County as part of the Good Steward Grant. We were one of six out of eighteen applicants awarded funds that applied for water and natural resource restoration projects! This grant funding will restore five acres on the west side of the property to oak savanna.
Help us leverage this funding.
Your donation will augment the restoration efforts including the purchase of native seed mixes and plants, as well as future projects, for example, interpretive signs, foot bridges, and bird nest boxes.
