Town of Beloit Learning Arboretum Park

Each Leadership Development Academy of Rock County participant works with a small group of their fellow class members to plan and execute a collaborative project that addresses a community need. These projects and their results are presented each May and serve as the program's capstone experience.

Town of Beloit Learning Arboretum Park

Team L.I.T. is developing a parcel of land located in Beloit Township into a learning arboretum that will provide the residents of the Town of Beloit and neighboring communities a safe and aesthetically pleasing area in which to relax, as well as the opportunity to learn more about several species of trees which, when planted around the Township, will not only beautify their yards, but will help to further enhance the biodiversity of the tree species present in the Town’s urban forest. Planting examples of these trees in the park area will give easy visual answers to the common questions: What will the type tree look like, and how big will that tree grow?
