You are invited to attend the MPSTMA Tour-on-Wheels on Wed., June 10. An great
tour is planned with stops at two professional baseball stadiums along with
Baker Park, a Three Rivers Park District venue located in Plymouth.
The tour begins at 8:oo a.m. at CHS Field in lowertown St. Paul, the brand new
home of the St. Paul Saints Baseball Club. The group will then move on to Target
Field, home of the Minnesota Twins Baseball Club. The stadium stops will discuss

maintenance techniques used on their fields.
At Baker Park, discussions will be about sustainability, waste management and
public communication strategies. Also, there will be information about their
forestry departments EAB (emerald ash borer) plan.
The busload will then make its way back to CHS Field and attendees will have an
option to take in a Saints baseball game that evening. The game requires an
additional fee for tickets. The tickets range from $6.00 to $18.00.
Zero Waste Lunch
Reinders will sponsor the Tour-on-Wheels lunch at Baker Park at 12:00 noon. We
will attempt to have this a zero waste lunch! Three Rivers 'specializes' in
providing a Zero Waste meal option. This will be a great take-away for attendees
from the Tour.
A zero waste event produces less than one ounce of trash per person. We will
reduce the amount of natural resources that are used by making careful choices
before, during, and after the event to reduce our impact on the environment. We
will use reusable items whenever possible and recycle/compost the rest.
The key things are to stay away from Styrofoam, plastic serving ware, and other
materials that have to go into the trash container.
You are encouraged to sign up early for this event due to limited seating on the
