Motorola Global Day of Service
Plan It Green in Markham Park
For the second year in a row Motorola included Broward County parks as a stop in its annual Global Day of Service . More than 135 volunteers, who work at Motorola’s Plantation, Florida, facility came out to Markham Park and Target Range on Wednesday, October 15, 2008,and contributed 551 hours of service. Four pickup trucks and a 10-foot, a 20-foot, and two 30-foot trailers were filled with invasive plants such as Caesar weed, Australian pine, and melaleuca, to make way for indigenous species like cocoplum, royal fern, and slash pines. Thanks to the Motorola volunteers, more than 1,860 native trees and plants were reestablished at the park in Sunrise.
Volunteers are always welcome at Broward County Parks. For more information about volunteering, click here.
