Thank you to the 14 volunteers who spent their Saturday morning removing scotch broom from Clover Park’s Natural Resources Laboratory and Research Park at Flett Creek. Our fabulous Eco Club members were a great source of information about the invasive scotch broom that the volunteers removed in order to prevent them from overtaking the endangered Garry Oak trees, Camas flowers, and Chocolate Lilies that call CPTC’s Oak Savannah home. So far this year, 227 Clover Park volunteers have contributed 713 hours of service working with organizations such as Project Homeless Connect, Tacoma Rescue Mission, Habitat for Humanity, and Northwest Harvest. You are all amazing!
Join the Peer Mentors for their next service project service project:
