Historic Pilot Knob is the portion of Oheyawahe “the hill much visited” that is owned by the City of Mendota Heights. Great River Greening was hired to restore Historic Pilot Knob’s vegetation to oak savanna. With funding from the American Express Foundation, Great River Greening hired SRF Consulting to analyze the Historic Pilot Knob site and to design a plan to improve visitor experience and safety. The design includes proposals for new signage, new parking lot, a structure for gathering, a wheelchair accessible looped trail, and artwork by a Dakota artist.
The final draft is ready for review and suggestions at http://pilotknobpreservation.org/
Public comments will be considered before the final design plan is presented to the Mendota
Heights City Council. Fundraising for implementation of the plan remains to be determined.
