Central MN Buckthorn Removal Project


Remove buckthorn from multiple central Minnesota Wildlife Management Areas and the Rum River State Forest. It's no secret that buckthorn is a very real, and very formidable threat to many of the native species of our great state. Many acres are involved and need to be dealt with now, rather than later. We must get on top of this as soon as possible. See map for details.
