Environmental Initiatives

Turtle Team 6

Educate, inspire, and engage the community to create a more resilient city through environmental stewardship and sustainable practices.  



Promote awareness of environmental stewardship and sustainable practices through programming, classes, and workshops.



Be a leader in the community by implementing sustainable practices and low-impact development techniques in our parks system.



Provide opportunities for residents to volunteer and participate in environmentally sustainable activities at special events.

Our team really wants to create an atmosphere of collaboration with our community and spotlight the amazing things people in our community are already doing.  We know you are out there doing great things and we want to hear all about it!  We want to encourage social media interaction and support for the environmental work being done in our community.

Feel free to reach out to us via our Facebook page or email Jenene Jeffries, jjeffries@roundrocktexas.gov

We look forward to embarking on this journey with you!
