Tacoma’s Northwest Trek Wildlife Park this week got some muscle this week from about 20 Joint Base Lewis-McChord airmen who spent Wednesday giving the grounds a late-spring cleaning.
The airmen belong to Lewis-McChord’s 62nd Airlift Wing. They wanted to get their hands dirty hacking blackberries and planting trees to build connections with the communities around the base.
“It’s part of being a well-rounded member of the military community,” and the work helps keep air crews fit, Staff Sgt. James Lee, 30, who organized the work party, said in a news release from the park.
