MLK Day – A Day of Volunteering

MLK Day_promo_small

Join us for an educational and training session on Monday, January 20 at the Cedarholm Community building, 2323 Hamline Ave., from 10 a.m. to noon as we kickoff our 2020 Natural Resources Program.

Since 2014, Roseville’s Natural Resources Management Program has been working to remove non-native plants and restore native plants and habitats on city parkland, spanning more than 375 acres of savanna, woodland and shoreline.

As the work has progressed, more parks have been restored, and volunteers have taken a larger role to help with ongoing tasks, including removing buckthorn, pulling garlic mustard, planting native plant seeds and other responsibilities.

It’s time to celebrate Roseville and its volunteers. On January 20, Environmental Scientist Diane Narem will teach about the best ways to plant and maintain native grasses in cold climates.

Narem, together with University of Minnesota Professor Mary Hockenberry Meyer, is the co-author of the 2019 Gold Award winning e-book Gardening with Native Grasses in Cold Climates and a Guide to Butterflies They Support. Following Narem’s presentation, attendees will get an update on Roseville’s natural resources plans for 2020.

Contact Rachel Boggs at 651-792-7028 or rachel.boggs@cityofroseville.com to learn how you can volunteer to help maintain Roseville’s natural resources.
