The Rosemount Environment and Sustainability Task Force partnered with the Rosemount High School Green Team on a community litter clean-up day on May 6, 2018. About 40 volunteers helped clean up litter at four designated clean-up areas. Over 40 bags of trash and recycling were collected and properly disposed of. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped make the day a success! Cleaning up litter helps keep our ponds and community clean and contributes to a more healthy environment. Any group interested in helping with litter clean up throughout the year can adopt a City street. For more information contact the Volunteer Engagement Manager.
Rosemount’s Environment and Sustainability Task Force partnered with the Rosemount High School Green Team for invasive garlic mustard removal events in Carroll's Woods. Carroll's Woods is adjacent to the school and is owned by the City and ISD 196. These events have been a great opportunity for students to be immersed in nature, reduce the invasive plant population, and learn to identify the variety of plants growing in the woods. Approximately, 100 compost bags have been filled and transported to the Mulch Store for composting over the course of five removal events. Even so, there is still more garlic mustard that needs to be removed. Any group interested in organizing an invasive garlic mustard pulling event can contact Derick Anderson (612) 322-2055 to arrange for the Task Force to support the event.
