Sioux Trail Elementary School is partnering with Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 and the City of Burnsville to restore our Whispering S.T.A.R.R. (Sioux Trail Acts Respectfully and Responsibly) Prairie that was established in 1997. Over the past 18 years, buckthorn (an invasive species) has overgrown the area and is choking out the native plants that are growing there. We are going to work together to remove the buckthorn in the area this fall on a date to be determined.
We need lots of volunteers to help make a difference! We hope that it will be a community event, so bring your friends, neighbors and long handled shovels to help us! BUST OUT THAT BUCKTHORN!
