With an extensive tree canopy on Iowa State's 1,900-acre campus, it takes a team approach to remove leaves this time of year. Earlier in the week, this team used blowers and a vacuum to clear leaves near the Jischke Building.

In addition to grounds work, campus services crews are responsible for pest and wildlife management, and maintaining Lake LaVerne, the ISU cemetery and campus parking lots, sidewalks, bike paths and roads.
