Mapleton Lake Nursery Landscape Tree Fundraiser

mapletonlogoIn 1994, Bob and Diana Schowalter bought a former dairy farm in the Town of Oconomowoc.  They began to plant various tree and shrub seedlings to re-establish the wildlife habitat on the farm.

In 1996, Bob’s sister Mary developed breast cancer and Bob formed Mapleton Lake Nursery to donate certain trees to raise funds for cancer related charities.

mapletonSince that time Mark Miller and Bryon Riesch, close friends of the Showalters suffered severe spinal cord injuries. In an effort to help they
are now donating trees to raise funds for the Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation as well.

Contact Mapleton Lake Nursery to place your order and arrange for your pick-up.  Please mention the Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation when placing your order.
