Rotary/ERCA Legacy forest

The Rotary Club of LaSalle Centennial has supported this project with annual financial contributions and by sending volunteers to help plant over 50,000 trees. This 70 acre restoration project, which is known as the Rotary Legacy Forest, is restoring agricultural lands to pre-settlement condition: forest, wetlands and some prairie habitat, and creating a riparian buffer along drainage corridors leading into the significant wetland. This restoration project will have multiple environmental benefits including providing a habitat linkage for wildlife, improving water quality, providing monitoring opportunities and creating additional ecological diversity.
