Thanks to former MT member Jerry Gold, who transferred to Milwaukee North Shore RC, we have a great opportunity to do our first tree planting project. Mequon Nature Preserve is providing 200 trees for their restoration work and all they need are some people of action to plant them on Monday 16 October. We’ll be teaming with Milwaukee North Shore and possibly another Rotary Club, but volunteers can also be friends and family of members too.

Jerry has coordinated two work shifts 9am-12pm and 1:00pm-4:pm. The 200 hundred trees will mostly be 5 gallon buckets. But there is mulching and other things people can do to participate. Mequon Nature Preserve will supply the equipment needed.

Planning ahead for next year if we want to blow away our tree planting goal, we can also participate in planting 3,000 tree saplings. They do this around Earth day for their earth day initiative. Now that would really be an opportunity to show Rotary “making a difference”.

Thanks, Brian
