Lions Story of the Week: Janesville Noon Lions Club Cleans Up for Earth Day

Last week marked the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. We went out to Janesville, Wisconsin, to join Lions there as they cleaned up a local park.

Watch Lions and Leos clean up on Earth Day.

We watched Lions, Leos and their families join together to spread mulch, plant new shrubs, weed garden beds, fertilize plants and trim trees.  This was part of a two-phase spring cleaning of the park, which left it ready for visitors throughout the season.

Wisconsin was the birth place of Earth Day. Members of the Janesville Noon Lions Club said that environmental projects are an important community service that brings Lions and their neighbors together for a common cause.

What is your club doing to help the environment?  Let us know in the comment section.

    You have a great community EarthDay gardening example in Janesville Lions. Do you have photos of the EarthDay project over the years? If so, please consider putting it together as a story on YourGardenShow.com. It will be visible to a new audience, I think, and we are looking for gardening projects in Wisconsin to take to the media; although I am sure you have had a good share of publicity, there is never too much of it for a good project!

    The website is easy and free to use, and was featured on CBS evening news in Milwaukee as well as some other cities:
