Last Saturday, community groups from around Lakewood came together to clean up and improve Lakewood’s South Sound Wild Life area. Organized by Clover Park Rotary and joined by Lakewood Rotary, work crews from Pierce College and Clover Park Schools came together to make this unique area a better place to be and learn.
Work included replacement of a decrepit retaining wall in the public parking area, picking up garbage along Phillips road, removal of scotch broom to restore the prairie area and working on the indigenous plant interpretation are.
Located on Phillips Road, this area is open to the public and a great place to get outdoors. All the work in our Wildlife area has been performed by local volunteers who care about keeping this unique area open and usable for both people and the wildlife that live here. Come take a walk through some of the last existing prairie lands in Lakewood.
Care about Wildlife and environmental education? Come join in the project. Our next Big work party will be in September, but we have small jobs going on monthly.
