Over 12 years ago hundreds of trees were removed from Rainbow Park in Prince George because of the Mountain Pine beetle epidemic, but members of the three Rotary clubs in Prince George have joined forces to replant the Park.

"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.
