Shoreline Breakfast Rotary plants trees at Ronald Bog

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Volunteers from the Shoreline Breakfast Rotary spent a Saturday morning in December planting ten Oregon conifers in Ronald Bog Park.

Pictured are Dick Nicholson, Connor O’Neil, Harley O'Neil, Mike Rancich, Dan Lyons, and Riley O’Neil.

The Breakfast Rotary has been making improvements to Ronald Bog park since before Shoreline was incorporated, starting with the shelter next to the lake and then to the tree projects. In recent years, they have worked in cooperation with Shoreline Parks to bring in the kiosk and improve the trail in the park.

Dick Nicholson, who drove to Oregon to buy the trees from a native plant nursery, says that by expanding the arboretum project to conifers from the entire Northwest, including Oregon and Idaho, they were able to bring in unusual trees.

Ronald Bog is the Breakfast Rotary’s main civic project. Volunteers Nicholson, Harley O’Neil and Mike Rancich relax after a successful operation. Not pictured but present, Randy Schnabel.
