Apr 20 – LINCOLN ROTARY CLUBS DONATE 300 TREES

Earth Day event scheduled for April 22 at Pioneers Park

Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department will celebrate a 300-tree donation by two Lincoln Rotary Clubs with an Earth Day event at the playground in Pioneers Park, 3201 S. Coddington Ave.  The April 22 event is from 1 to 3 p.m. and will begin with brief remarks, followed by volunteers adding mulch to recently-planted trees.  The Lincoln East Rotary Club and Downtown Rotary Club #14 provided the trees.
“The Rotary Clubs’ gift helps the City maintain a healthy and diverse urban canopy and allows for replacement of trees removed due to Emerald Ash Borer damage,” said Mark Canney, Lincoln Parks and Recreation Park Planner.  Trees will be planted throughout Lincoln along streets and in parks.
Jennifer Brinkman, President of Rotary #14, said that the tree donation stems from a challenge by Rotary International President-elect Ian H.S. Riseley that every club make a difference in their communities by planting a tree for each of its members.  The goal is to plant 1.2 million trees throughout the world.
“We are excited to partner with the City of Lincoln to meet the challenge issued by our international president and make a significant impact in our community,” Brinkman said. “Rotarians are committed to living our organization’s motto of ‘Service Above Self’. This project will honor our current members, their service to our community and the world,” she said.
“One of the most significant benefits of this partnership is the long-term positive effects that will result from the tree plantings,” added Barry Stelk, President of Lincoln East Rotary.  “Rotary values sustainability as a core tenet of all their philanthropic work and this new focus on improving the environment continues that commitment,” Stelk said.

Additional funding is provided by the Lincoln Parks Foundation, Nebraska Statewide Arboretum and the Two for Trees program. For more information about Lincoln parks, visit parks.lincoln.ne.gov.  For more information on the Lincoln Parks Foundation, visit LincolnParks.org
