The Elizabeth Fries Ellet Intrepretive Trail is a public educational trail system at Richard T. Anderson Conservation Area in Eden Prairie. The trail and educational programming are being developed by Writers Rising Up, a 501(3) non-profit organization. This year, the group is offering a number of events that might be of interest to members of the Minnesota Native Plant Society.
