One of the beautification and coastal preservation projects of the Rotary Club of Pago Pago is to plant mangrove seedlings and clean up in the coastal area of Lions Park. The Lions Park and Pala Lagoon areas is a diverse ecosystem that provides a habitat and sanctuary for many marine wildlife especially turtles. It is also a family recreational and picnic area and enjoyed by the local community. Over a dozen Rotarians have joined in the planting of these mangrove areas and cleaning up the lagoon area on a monthly basis to ensure a healthy and thriving coastal environment.
