Cleanup Crew Enjoys Volunteering at Cleland Wildlife Park


Under the direction of park rangers a cheerful band of 24 volunteers from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined other locals in a clean up blitz at Adelaide’s popular Cleland Wildlife Park on Saturday 29 October.

They joined Latter-day Saints across the Australia who similarly lent a hand in their neighbourhoods on the Church’s designated Weekend of Community Outreach.

“Joining in with the other volunteers for the Cleland Wildlife Park Blitz was a great activity for the single adults. It provided us with the opportunity to work together to do something good for the community,” said participant Jodey Hatchard.

“We were able to help with weed control, as well as laying fresh sand and mulch within some of the animal enclosures. One of our groups was able to get up close with Fred the wombat while working within his enclosure. It was physical work, however we found it to be really rewarding and a great bonding experience.”
