Youth in Washington State provided a service project at a local park last year. Working in cooperation with the Earth Corp Group, 112 Latter-day Saint youth and adults participated. During the restoration project over 500 trees were planted and noxious plants and weeds were pulled. Over 350 service hours were volunteered to beautify the park. Many members of the community voiced their appreciation to the volunteers and were excited about the improvements. Even the city’s mayor made an appearance and publicly thanked the volunteers. Youth leaders commented that it was great to be out in the community doing service and showing that the youth of the Church can step outside of themselves.
