About: MN Nature, MNDoT, City of St. Paul, and Little Bohemia neighborhood have partnered to restore the urban forest along a mile-plus freeway ROW in St. Paul. This partnership is based on a simple belief: A single person planting a single tree can help revitalize neglected areas, effect climate change, clean the air, capture rainwater and build a sense of community.
