Church members to clean up local parks

FALLBROOK – On Saturday, May 8, the Fallbrook members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the Mormons) will be participating in statewide community service projects to help clean up and preserve our city, state and county parks. With budget shortfalls our parks and community centers are in need of a little TLC.

Over 250,000 are expected to participate at the state level.

In Fallbrook, approximately 300 volunteers have signed up to complete various projects locally. They will be wearing distinctive yellow “Helping Hands” vests.

Volunteers have already begun several preliminary projects at Live Oak Park. On Monday, April 19 they began the renovation of the shade garden at the back of Live Oak Park. They provided a bobcat, a tractor and the manpower to clear the old shade garden, level the ground and replace the old fence around the garden. The upper trail was cleared and widened. On May 8, the garden will be completed, a new railing will be installed to the side of the existing stairs, and new benches installed.

Other projects include placing a rock barrier, trimming and clearing trails at Santa Margarita Equestrian Preserve; re-striping the parking lot at Rainbow Park, various projects at the Fallbrook Community Center, and clearing and planting at Don Dussault Park.

The events will culminate back at Live Oak Park with a barbecue and picnic.
