EBA Gives Back Project

EBA Conference attendees are invited to join us for EBA Gives Back: Your choice to participate a local, charity activity taking place on  Sunday, June 10 from 9am -12pm.

 

Planned with Minneapolis Parks, this year's EBA Gives Back project focuses on planting plants at a hummingbird or butterfly garden adjacent to one of the lakes. Volunteers will be helping out in either the Perennial Annual Garden of the Butterfly or Hummingbird Garden, taking place at Lyndale Park Gardens, which is adjacent to Lake Harriet.  

Located 3.9 miles from the hotel, volunteers will walk over to Hennepin Ave. (4 blocks away) and take the number 4 bus that runs south, ride to 40th street and Bryant, and then it's a two block walk to get to park.

 

To sign up, add the optional ticket to your registration.
