Duluth, MN

Duluth has been a member of the Cities of Service coalition since 2012. Since then, Duluth has moved the needle on emergency preparedness and sustainability through volunteer-driven programs. Today, resident volunteers are helping to make Duluth a greener, safer city through park beautification and litter removal, invasive species intervention, and tree and vegetable planting programs.

Chief Service Officer

Cheryl Skafte

Cheryl is dedicated to helping people in her community support some of the most beloved community resources. During her time at the City of Duluth, she has worked diligently to increase the number of meaningful volunteer opportunities available, as well as build strong relationships across City divisions to maximize the impact of service within the municipality.


Duluth Invaders

Duluth Invaders is a service initiative organized by the City of Duluth to mobilize citizen volunteers to assist in controlling and removing terrestrial invasive plants, as well as restore the lands damaged by them within the City of Duluth. Invasive species often don't have predators, so they are free to grow uncontested, and can be very expensive to destroy. Duluth Invaders is a low-cost, resident-driven strategy that helps to 1) ensure natural beauty within the parks; 2) foster a healthy ecosystem for native flora and fauna; and 3) prevent a single-specied forest or prairie.
