Freedom Park got lots of help from Discovery Place staff and the general public! Charlotte Water (a division of Utilities, Inc.) sent a great team for a shoreline cleanup at McDowell Nature Preserve! Students from Lincoln Charter School did a great job at Latta Nature Preserve! The Sierra Club spent a morning removing invasive plants along Little Sugar Creek Greenway at Freedom Park! DOZENS of Volunteer COACHES have been lending HUNDREDS of hours of their time to help with Youth Soccer, Flag Football, Cheerleading and Lil' Ray Sports!
The HIGHLIGHT of the month was a playground installation at Huntingtowne Farms Park, completed by an AWESOME group of U.S. MARINES!
