PRINCE GEORGE - The three local Rotary clubs have joined forces to replant Rainbow Park. It was more than a dozen years ago that hundreds of trees were removed from that destination park because of the Mountain Pine beetle epidemic.

"There are 200 seedlings we're putting in the ground today, including the Rotaracts from UNBC and, with the three Rotary Clubs, a total of 30 people," explains Kevin Beatty, President of the Rotary Club of Prince George. 

"We were supposed to have [this event] back in April but there was snow on the ground. So we're having it today," says Beatty, who adds that the city's three Rotary clubs typically join forces for specific projects like this one.
