This service Saturday to the Palm Beach Zoo was a huge success for SAVI! The event was co-sponsored with Alpha Psi Lambda Co-Ed Latin Fraternity Inc. and had a full turn out of about 33 students who came out to work with the horticulture department at the zoo. Our task was to clean up an area filled with plants, dirt, and garbage in order for the zoo staff to start growing food for the animals. The aftermath of the clean-up was amazing! The entire area was cleared and ready for planting. Everyone worked together to help out and didn’t mind getting their hands dirty. After, we had lunch and got the chance to walk around the zoo to see the animals. The students loved it since they got to enjoy themselves after a lot of hard work. This is definitely something we will do again.
