The Greater Mankato Rotary Club - Eco club recently received a boost as it begins an ambitious project in Rotary Park (Augusta and St. Andrews in Mankato). The group, which is a focused subgroup of the Greater Mankato Rotary Club is undertaking a pollinator project set to beautify the park while adding native plants that are friendly to bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. They received a Rotary Shark Tank grant for phases beginning July 1. In the meantime, work has begun around the entrance sign to the park. Additional phases will include more native plant areas, signage to learn more about the plants, and sculptures, including one that spreads the word about the great works of Rotary.
