Natural Resources is a division of the Operations & Recreation Department. This division works to protect, restore and enhance the natural areas and resources of St. Louis Park, including a diverse urban tree population, a wide array of wildlife, 28 water bodies and Westwood Hills Nature Center.
Stewardship of these resources is vital and important to the St. Louis Park community. Responsibilities of the Natural Resources Division include:
Urban forestry programs.
Education and outreach.
Landscaping and restoration.
Invasive species management.
Weed ordinance enforcement.
Natural resource development review and guidance.
There are all kinds of ways to get involved and help the city protect its natural resources. Participate in community tree planting or the annual Minnehaha Creek cleanup, attend a workshop such as How to Create a Weather Resilient Yard or be an Adopt-a-Park or Garden volunteer. Watch St. Louis Park social media sites, view the calendar and check Park Perspective for more information on these and many other opportunities.
