2020 Centennial Project Details:

-The Rotary Club of Guelph turns 100 in 2020

-To celebrate our 100 years of service, the Rotary Club of Guelph in partnership with the Rotary Charitable Foundation, the GRCA and the GRCF, are turning the Rotary Forest into an exciting hub for the entire community to embrace active living, a healthy environment, family time and education.

- The Rotary Club of Guelph and the Rotary Foundation have donated $250,000 toward the GRCF’s wonderful new Nature Centre.  The Centre will have modern learning spaces for the 20,000+ young people who will benefit each year from hands-on programs and will be a gathering place for park visitors to take part in nature programs and access information.

- An observatory will be built at Guelph Lake.  An ideal location for star-gazing where everyone can broaden their minds and be inspired by the wonder of the universe. The observatory will have a retractable roof containing 3 powerful telescopes.
-An inflatable planetarium will be part of the new Nature Centre - a fantastic and awe-inspiring education tool for all ages.

- A fully accessible trail will be built within the Rotary Forest to support a range of activities all year round and will connect the Rotary Forest with the future Nature Centre and observatory within the park.
-Fundraising initiatives for these wonderful projects are still ongoing by the Rotary Club of Guelph and the Grand River Conservation Foundation.  Donations welcome!
