Green Way Arboretum

The chair of the Fond du Lac Parkwatch group says they’ve worked hard to give people a piece of nature in the City with the development of the Green Way Arboretum. Laura DeGolier says the 24 acre spot off the west side of the parking lot for the Pick ‘n Save on South Main Street was overgrown with brush when they first looked it over. She says some kids used it for trails for bikes and motorcycles and there was a section that was a privately owned landfill. She says volunteers have worked hard over the years to keep it clear of brush and plants that might detract from residents’ enjoyment of the Arboretum. She says it looks incredibly different now from what they started with in 2005.
