For Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North's Luncheon on August 31, 2017, we went to the University of Michigan's Matthaei Botanical Gardens. Mike Kost, talked to us about the garden. Mike said, "Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum are two properties in different locations operating as one unit within the University of Michigan." Matthaei Botanical Gardens is the conservatory; gift shop; classroom and meeting spaces; display gardens such as the Gaffield Children’s Garden, Bonsai & Penjing Garden, Great Lakes Gardens, and others; and many trails and natural areas. The Arb is home to the Nichols Arboretum Peony Garden and several collections of historic or native plants such as the Julie Norris Post Collection of Ericaceous and Appalachian Plants, Centennial Shrub Collection, prairie, and others. At the start of the meeting Vern Hutton announced, that Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North received a check for over $2000.00 from a Club real estate investment.
