One year ago, the Evanston Lighthouse Rotary Club joined forces with the Evanston Parks Department to replace the 3,500 trees that have been recently lost to disease. On Oct. 6, members of the Evanston Lighthouse Rotary Club will take one step closer to fulfilling that pledge by hosting a City-wide tree planting event.

With the help of Rotary Club of Evanston members, the Evanston Lighthouse Rotary Club tree-lovers will descend on five Evanston parks – Eggleston, Baker, Raymond, Smith and Butler – armed with shovels, work gloves and 50 trees, the varieties of which were chosen by the Parks Department in accordance with the needs of the parks.

The club has participated in two previous tree plantings, contributing 50 trees in the fall of 2017 and 100 trees last spring. Many members purchased and planted trees in honor of lost loved ones, and all trees were planted to further the club’s mission to contribute to the local community in a meaningful way.

Last spring, Northwestern University and the Celtic Knot Public House contributed trees and volunteers to the planting and a local Boy Scout troop and the Beacon Academy Rotaract Club joined in the planting event.
