20,000 Trees and Counting! 
Saving the Environment One Tree at a Time
Working with the with the Township of McNab/Braeside, Arnprior Rotary helped to secure funding from Forests Ontario for a significant Tree Planting operation beginning on April 25, 2022.  Arnprior Rotary also successfully applied for a Rotary District 7040 Grant to help to expand the Clay Bank Nature Park for Outdoor Learning.
Arnprior is one of the fastest growing small towns in Ontario and the expansion of Highway 417 to Renfrew is now underway.  To counteract the tree loss due to that expansion, real estate development, the removal of agricultural windrows, and tree mortality due to insects, Arnprior Rotary and the Township of McNab/Braeside have teamed up to plant thousands of white spruce, red pine and white pine trees - 22,840 over two years to be exact - through the Forests Ontario and the 50 Million Tree Program.
Rotary International’s newest Area of Focus is The Environment into which the Arnprior Rotary Club has leapt with both feet in a significant way.
We are looking for new members and this is just another example of Rotary in Action in our community.
