The Como Community Council’s second annual Sunday Series kicks off in February, with the presentation “Como Lake: Past, Present, and Future.” If you’ve ever wondered what affects the lake’s water quality or wanted to know more about the plants that ring the shoreline, this is the place to learn more from the experts.
This free public talk will be held on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2-3:30 p.m., at North Dale Recreation Center, 1414 N. St. Albans St. A panel, including staff from the Capitol Region Watershed District and St. Paul Parks and Recreation’s Environmental Services Division, along with two neighborhood residents involved with lake issues, will provide a comprehensive program on maintenance of the lake, beginning with the poor condition of the lake 20 years ago, measures taken and yet to be implemented to improve water quality, and ways that residents can be involved. A question-and-answer period will follow the presentation.
The Sunday Series continues with “All About Old-time Trolleys” on March 24 and “Creative Gardening for Urban Spaces” on April 14. Mark your calendars for all three of these informative events.
