The Bash

After a relentless 10-year effort to rid 2,200 acres of beautiful Glacial Lakes State Park land from an extremely invasive shrub, the Minnesota DNR and the Friends of Glacial Lakes State Park was pleased to announce they were hosting a celebration of the removal of the last known, fruit-bearing Buckthorn in the park. This event took place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9th .

The celebration featured guided tours of prairie and parkland, canoe expeditions in gorgeous Mountain Lake, tours of the newest park cabin, expert-hosted land management discussions, live music, food and a torch light march (with chanting) to remove the last buckthorn followed by a ceremonial bonfire. Kids will be decorating buckthorn cookies and fashioning them into necklaces.
