Between January and April, Roseville residents are encouraged to reuse a commonly discarded item in their home – cardboard tubes from used paper towel and toilet paper rolls. These will be used to craft flowers that will be displayed in locations throughout Roseville before being brought together as a Community Art Garden at the Celebrate the Earth Festival in April.

It is with a tremendous sense of loss that we share the sad news that Bob Garrison, supervisor of the Utility Exploration Center since it opened in 2007, was killed in a car crash on July 21. (See obituary here.) Bob has been an incredible leader of this center and effective environmental advocate in the community, raising awareness of the Utility Exploration Center to a statewide level. His legacy lives on in the work of the Center and his friendship will always remain in our hearts. We wanted to share with you the impact that Bob had in his work at the Center.
