The Chicagoland Lithuanian Rotaract Club members are committed to the environmental restoration project for the Heritage Quarries Recreational Area.  Here is some work they did on Earth Day.

The Bradley-Bourbonnais Rotary Club planted a pollinator garden with students at St. Gregory School on May 10 using funds from a District Environmental Grant.

Members of Districts 6440 & 6450 signed a new Pollinator Pledge at the joint district conference on April 20th.
