State Grant Prepared by the Friends of Cullen Awards the City of Minnetonka with $45,000 to Restore Nine Acres of the Preserve
We just learned that the Department of Natural Resources CPL Expedited grant application prepared by the Friends on behalf of the City of Minnetonka was approved for funding. The City of Minnetonka will receive $45,000 to restore nine acres of the preserve to oak savanna. This grant is in addition to the $25,000 grant awarded by Hennepin County. With City matching funds and the in-kind volunteer contribution by the Friends, we will be allocating $100,000 to fund the ecological restoration of the preserve!
