Roseville Parks Wildlife Habitat Restoration


Roseville proposes to restore 106 acres of diverse wildlife habitat at two city-owned parks, including oak forest, savanna, prairie, emergent wetland and shallow lake shoreline. These habitats support remnant plant communities rare for an urban core area and will be improved for game species (especially wood duck), nongame species (birds and pollinators), as well as shoreline and near-shore habitat in Bennett Lake. Oak forest/savanna and prairie/oak woodland areas are currently characterized by an abundance of invasive/nonnative brush. Proposed activities include hand cutting and treating brush around sensitive features, mechanical shredding, and seeding with local ecotype native grasses and flowers to provide quality habitat for a wide variety of wildlife. Mowing, herbicides and prescribed burns will help control persistent invasive species. Our objective is to dramatically reverse declining pollinator trends and increase waterfowl and nongame wildlife habitat value.
