It's hard to believe in just months, we'll strolling through the beautiful Rose Garden in the City of Duluth near Lake Superior, without a jacket on, because as I write this blog, we have a wintery mix expected for the next couple of days.  Of course, to reap the benefits of the garden's beauty, the hard work has to start now and you're help is needed.

It happens annually in Duluth the “raising of the roses” in the popular Lakewalk Rose Garden.  Want to get in on the fun?  Volunteers are invited to join in on this annual spring tradition and there are two upcoming opportunities to do so.

Clear your calendar, the Rose Garden work days are slated for Saturday, April 18th from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon and Tuesday, April 21st 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, with a rain date of Sunday, April 26th from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm.

** All dates and times are subject to change and are weather dependent. **

Even beginners are welcome because City of Duluth Park & Rec staff and representatives from the Lake Superior Rose Society will be on hand to teach the volunteers the spring steps of the Minnesota tip winterizing method for tender roses.  Gain knowledge while you're helping with one of the most visited areas of Duluth by locals and tourists!

Volunteers are encouraged to bring gloves and remember to dress for the weather.

Register your participation by emailing or calling 218-730-4334.
