[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] November 2019

[#mnrising Dispatch] November 2019

Thanks to all those who joined in on the festivities or sent warm wishes in anticipation of Minnesota Rising's 10th Anniversary Celebration earlier this month. In the spirit of gratitude for 10 years as an evolving, (un-)learning statewide network and in recognition of the Dakota and Anishinaabe native nations that are original and modern-day inhabitants of this land we call Minnesota, we remain ever-aspiring to build relationships, trust, and a shared vision for our communities and all those who will come after us.


Thank you for being a part of the past 10 years of Minnesota Rising and we hope you'll join us for another decade of building the network for what's next!

Lower Phalen Creek Project Winter Bird Count

A bird count is a free, fun, and easy way for bird watchers of all ages to engage in citizen science by counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of bird populations. Participants will identify and count birds at Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary and report sightings online for analysis which helps guide scientists and policy-makers in addressing the needs of birds. Each session will be led by local birders - Monica Bryand, Abbie Anderson, and/or Maggie Lorenz. Bring binoculars if you have them, there will be a few to borrow if needed. Meet at the entrance to Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary at 4th and Commercial St. Dress for the weather. [More info.]

The Winter Guide

Help newcomers prepare for winter with Make It. MSP.'s Online Winter Guide! Make It. MSP. research has shown that Minnesota winters can be a significant source of anxiety for newcomers - especially those who have never experienced a midwest winter before moving here. It's not just about knowing if and when you need to winterize your car. It's also about connecting newcomers to the local activities, traditions, and events across the Greater MSP region that make this season great. Make It. MSP. created the free online Winter Guide to help newcomers prepare for and navigate their snowy seasons in Greater MSP. With everything from a winter lingo glossary and transportation guide to events calendars and seasonal recipes, this resource empowers residents to make the most of their winter experience.
