ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. - More than two hundred volunteers showed up to Naval Station Mayport early Saturday morning ready to get their hands dirty!
Volunteers from Naval Station Mayport, JAX True Blue, CSX and First Coast News participated in an all volunteer event to clear a path around Lake Wonderwood on base.
Volunteers were armed with chainsaws, rakes, shovels and their bare hands in an effort to clear brush and overgrowth around the 22 acre lake.
One complete, "The Lake Wonderwood Project," will provide picnic areas, playgrounds and fitness stations for sailors and their families.
Naval Station Mayport is one of the largest naval bases in the Unites States and is home to more than five thousand sailors.
