Story of the Week: Local Park Looks Lovely Thanks to Lions in Washington
Our clubs are always looking for ways to improve their communities. Globally, we’re planting millions of trees to improve the environment, reduce erosion and provide habitats for wildlife. In Washington, the newly formed Normandy Park Lions Club cleared ivy from a local park as its first project.
The ivy was overgrown and started to absorb the soil’s nutrients, preventing resources from reaching the surrounding trees and other plants. Eight members of the club, along with members of the Burien Lions Club, spent more than six hours clearing the ivy and brush from Marine View Park.
In this video, you’ll see Lions in action cleaning up the park – and ending the afternoon with a mountain of ivy ready for composting.
