In June 2008 RCM pledged $400,000 toward the creation of the Milwaukee Rotary Centennial Arboretum. The Arboretum will be completed to commemorate the club’s 100th anniversary in 2013. The project was attractive in part because of its strong partners – the Urban Ecology Center, River Revitalization Foundation, Milwaukee Urban River Foundation, Milwaukee City & County, among others. But even more, Rotarians were inspired by a vision of a living forest classroom that would give back to the community for many generations to come. Ken Leinbach, Executive Director of the Urban Ecology Center, gave Rotary a progress update on the Milwaukee Rotary Centennial Arboretum.
