Shoreline Rotary members maintain the
Rotary Conifer Arboretum in Ronald Bog

Members of the Rotary Club of Shoreline held their annual maintenance work event at the Shoreline Rotary Conifer Arboretum in Ronald Bog Park on Saturday July 8, 2017.

The work completed by members included cleaning of the Kiosk, weeding the sedums on the Kiosk roof, trail maintenance, installation of trunk protection on newer trees, watering of trees, and general clipping and pruning of vegetation.

The weather was great and the members had an enjoyable outing. Future projects in the Arboretum were scoped out.

The Rotary Club of Shoreline, in 1991 initiated projects in the park including flower bulb and tree plantings. In 1997, the Shelter was constructed by the Shoreline Breakfast Rotary Club.

About 10 years ago, the Kiosk was constructed and there was a City of Shoreline dedication involving community leaders including Rotarians.

Over the years, many native conifer tree species have been planted in the Arboretum. Also, a walking path has been constructed throughout the site.

In collaboration with the City of Shoreline, recently a change was made on the entrance sign to include Rotary and the ‘wheel’. Rotary is now connected to the Arboretum including the Kiosk. 

Annually, Rotary volunteers maintain the Arboretum including the Kiosk.

This year volunteers included Rotarians Dick Nicholson and Diane Pottinger (Shoreline Rotary Parks / Environmental team leaders); Robert Brouillard, Ray Coffey, Bill Forney, Bob Hauck, Leonid Kisselev, Bill and Judy MacCully, Andrew Thurman, and Angie Yu.

The Community is encouraged to come out and enjoy the Arboretum located at 2301 N 175th St, Shoreline.
