We are not alone in our fight

There are other concerned citizens in the Twin Cities Metro Area fighting to protect nature.

Save Our Street

Save Our Street (SOS) is a citizens group that formed to protect St. Paul’s treasured Summit Avenue from the City’s Summit Regional Trail proposal that would dramatically change the avenue’s tree canopy, historic character and safety for all users.

Among other goals, they want to protect the tree canopy stretching along the 4.5 miles of Summit Avenue.

Independent arborists report 61% of tree canopy, approximately 950 trees, would be at severe risk (unlikely to recover). The construction would kill the trees within 5 years. Each of those trees absorbs 48 pounds of carbon dioxide a year and releases oxygen in exchange, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Friends of Grey Cloud

In Cottage Grove, MN, the old Mississippi Dunes Golf Course is being redeveloped into housing. Friends of Grey Cloud is fighting for the land to be protected for conservation purposes. Like Central Park, it’s a site of high biodiversity significance, an Important Bird Area, and more.
