Planting On the ROW!

Connecting State of Minnesota DoT + Cities in Minnesota + Communities/Neighborhoods in Minnesota

MN Nature supports Community Roadside Landscaping Partnerships with communities and the State of Minnesota. This state program offers communities technical and financial assistance to install and maintain landscape plantings on eligible state highway ROWs (right-of-ways). We want to share this great resource with communities around the state.
