Our main focus is on climate change and Green Step Cities activities on the local level. We also expect to participate in activities the State League is proposing for the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day in April 2020. Our committee is planning a forum on environmental issues to include officials from each of the cities in the Roseville Area LWV in March 2020.and a field trip in June 2020.

LWVRA Environmental Subcommittee and Resilient Roseville are responsible for the city of Roseville enrolling in Excel’s Partners In Energy program. One of the results is the development of the Energy Action Team within Partners In Energy that made significant recommendations to the City of Roseville. The chair of the LWVRA Environmental Subcommittee is Donna Peterson who was selected to be a member of that team. You can learn more about this at CityOfRoseville.com/Partners-in-Energy.
Mark your calendar for Tuesday, June 23, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. We are planning on holding the LWV of Roseville Area annual field trip at this time. On the trip we will learn about the work of the Ramsey Washington Metro Watershed District. We’ll meet at the Watershed District Office at 9:30 a.m. (just west of Little Canada City Hall) to hear about the variety of ways storm water is managed and see a video of the projects undertaken. After the visit, we’ll carpool to Central Park Elementary School and then to Maplewood Mall to observe several projects in action. After the tour, we are invited to the home of Cecelia Warner to see the native plant area in their backyard, helped by grant money from the watershed district. Bring your brown bag lunch for a picnic.
Social distancing and masks are expected as recommended in state guidelines, However, just a reminder that following the guidelines reduces but does not eliminate the possibility of Covid-19 virus transmission. Everyone needs to use their own judgement. Do email Ann or Donna with questions or to sign up. We hope to see you there!
