Shoreline

Morning Sky Greenery (MSG) was the first nursery in west central Minnesota to specialize in growing native wildflowers and grasses. In particular, MSG was the first nursery in the area to grow plants specifically for shoreline restoration projects in the region.

MSG’s first project was located in the Alexandria area. Douglas County Land and Resource Management, the DNR and local citizens were concerned over shoreline erosion and runoff problems effecting the water quality of area lakes and streams. The health of these bodies of water were in jeopardy due to a rapidly growing local economy and urban sprawl. These planners had the foresight to think creatively and figure out solutions to the inevitable water quality issues they were facing. Morning Sky Greenery, being the only native plant grower in the region, at the time (1995),was invited to help in the effort of restoring shoreline in the Alexandria area. Today, MSG has been providing native plants, for hundreds of shoreline restoration projects all over Minnesota and beyond, ever since!
