Great Lakes Urban Forestry Management- September 7th, 2022
Southwest Branch had the first APWA Golf Outing of the year which was successful in raising funds for branches scholarship fund. We could have asked for better weather, but there were a few foursomes that finished all 18 holes. The Southwest Branch also awarded three scholarships to very deserving applicants. Thank to Don Cassier for planning a very successful Golf Outing and Jonathan Kjellman for coordinating the scholarships.
On May 4th, the APWA SW Branch and Fox Valley Branch cosponsored an educational event at Clarke Environmental.

Thank you to Clarke Environmental for hosting the event.
