While our national political leaders struggle mightily with health care reform, innovative leaders in the private sector, many of them in Wisconsin, have hammered out a new business model for the delivery of care. And they are saving money with the new model. They have pioneered four waves of reform:

 

  • Employer adoption of self-insurance to replace group insurance
  • Consumer-driven health plans that establish incentives and disincentives for smart behaviors.
  • Proactive primary care, often delivered on-site at the workplaces or near-site.
  • Value-based purchasing of treatments.

 

John Torinus has used his company, Serigraph Inc., as a beta site for these waves of reform. He contends that the striking results should inform the stymied attempts at reform in the nation’s capital.

ROOT (Restoring Our Outdoor Treasures)
10/07/17 9:30 AM

Volunteer Opportunities Register

Urban Ecology Center at Riverside Park

Come get your hands dirty and help us restore our outdoor treasures together! Help replace invasive species with native plants, trail maintenance, erosion control, and more. Most often we will be outside, so come prepared to go out and dress for the weather.

 

As part of this program, volunteers work outside to restore and preserve the Milwaukee Rotary Centennial Arboretum’s natural habitat. Your efforts, combined with hundreds of other volunteers, help make the natural land surrounding the Center the thriving place that it is today. The Arboretum is a healthy habitat for its native plants and animals, an educational resource for our members, urban students and summer campers, and a welcoming green space for all Milwaukee residents

 

ROOT volunteer work does require volunteers to be able to kneel, bend and walk on uneven terrain.  If there are any members of your group who have physical limitations, please let us know ahead of time so that we can do our best to accommodate them. 

 

All of the tools necessary to complete the projects will be provided by the Center.

 

This volunteer experience will take place outside. We ask that your group members dress for the weather, wear closed-toed shoes, and bring anything else that they need to be comfortable outdoors (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, insect repellant). We encourage individuals to bring their own reusable bottles which they can refill at our drinking fountain. This is a small gesture that volunteers and your company can do to help the Urban Ecology Center reach our low impact and sustainability goals.

 

The Urban Ecology Center is fortunate to have a free parking lot for the staff, visitors, and volunteers who drive to the Center. Out of respect for our residential neighbors’ limited street parking, we ask that your group members park in this lot unless it is full. It is located off of East Park Place, just past (west) of the Center building on the opposite side of the street.

 

In the event of inclement weather we may need to modify, shorten, reschedule or cancel the project.  We can be in communication if the weather is questionable.
