The Indigenous Roots and Reparation Foundation (IRRF) is an Indigenous lead nonprofit established in 2021 to preserve history, culture, traditions and language through education and advocacy.  Our goal is to provide a space on ancestral homelands for members of all tribes to practice cultural traditions, ceremony, and fellowship. This space will also serve as a hub for tribal members displaced by wildfire.   IRRF strives to build relationships within our community for the purpose of Earth preservation, recognition of the intrinsic value of all species and ecosystems, ensuring clean water and air, and returning human activity to a balanced, sustainable level.   READ MORE

ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITTEE PROJECTSNatalie Williams of Wenatchee Rotary Enviros wants the club to know that we have two opportunities to make a positive environmental impact.
1) The Rotary Enviros invite all Rotarians to collaborate with us planting a pollinator garden on Oct. 22, which is Rotary's "Make a Difference Day (MADD)" focus.  Three Rotary clubs are working together with the city to create the Wenatchee Pollinator Garden.
We have received permission from Wenatchee Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services Dept. to use the small area at Columbia and Kittitas (Columbia Station Park & Ride lot, just east of the intersection) for our pollinator garden.  We will be moving one-foot squares of rocks out of the way, cutting through the weed block, removing dirt into buckets, and planting native species plants.  We will hook up drip lines to existing irrigation.  It's definitely a gloves and knee-pads kind of project!
We need about 20 people from 3 clubs to show up at 10 AM, and bring a sun hat, gloves, hand trowel, knee pads & a 5 gal bucket (if possible).
Natalie will bring sharp knives to cut the landscape fabric.
Bring your own lunch.  
2)  A few Rotarians in various clubs have been pursuing the glass recycling issue for months.  Momentum has reached a point where we need to collaborate.  Three Rotary clubs will work together with the City and County to bring glass recycling back to the Wenatchee Valley.  Come to our Brainstorming Kick-off and learn what avenues are already in work: September 30 at 4:30 at the Highlander Grill in East Wenatchee.
