(WAUKESHA, WI) – The Waukesha County Park System is pleased to announce that The Waukesha Rotary Club has made a three-year commitment to support a new project at Retzer Nature Center in Waukesha.
“I am thrilled with this fantastic collaboration with the Waukesha Rotarians,” said Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow. “Contributions, like these, from local civic organizations and businesses allow us to enhance Waukesha County’s amenities for residents and visitors alike.”
