AU Organizations on the Move in the Community & Protecting the Environment

Lambda Zeta Chapter, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. signed up to participate in a community servicebeautification project on 11/15/14 at the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens located inNortheast Washington, DC.While there, they ran into the Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity also from American Univerity. They did not know that they had selected the same task, until they arrived at their assigned area. Their tasks included cutting down heavily invaded plant areas, raking sections of the park, and, assisting in cleaning the garden beds.

The two organizations worked diligently to clear a very large area that was covered with invasive plants, vines, trees and bushes.Some members of the Chapter also took a tour of this property and learned about the medicinal attributes of some of the plants.LZ and Alpha Phi Omega were pleased with their accomplishment. This was the first time the Chapters have worked together on this type of service project and looks forward to future opportunities to beautify the environment.
