The drizzly weather on Saturday, September 10 didn’t stop 140 members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from completing three large service projects at Majestic View Nature Center.
Families with toddlers, youngsters, and teenagers filed a thirty-yard dumpster of noxious weeds. Other families removed wire fencing and posts in a deep thicket of Russian Olive trees to allow wildlife to move safely through the park.
A small group of artists painted a landscape mural in the Visitor’s Center in preparation for the installation of an interactive beaver exhibit this fall. Mural designer Debbi Humrich commented, “Spaces are enriched and enhanced when they display public works of art. Such art can both inspire individuals and connect various populations together. Creating the mural for the Majestic View Nature Center will help bring greater understanding of Colorado’s wonderful outdoor natural inhabitants.”
“The City of Arvada was blown away at the speed and proficiency at which the members completed the tasks. It was an all around great morning,” said LDS member and service project leader Brandon Jenkins.
