Kelowna Rotarians plant bushes in Munson Pond Park – Okanagan
Kelowna Rotarians have brought together volunteers for an early morning gardening project to make Munson Pond Park a little more beautiful.
Volunteers planted 40 birch trees and 14 cedar trees with support from Kelowna City staff, Valley First staff, and students from UBC Okanagan.
“That’s what Rotary does in the community, and Rotary works with other groups in the community to bring people together. This is a good example, ”said Colin Pritchard, Kelowna Rotarian.
