Over 1000 Lifetime Products Employees Refurbish and Beautify Ogden Nature Center
June 3, 2013
CLEARFIELD, UTAH — Over 1,000 employees of local manufacturing company Lifetime Products recently donated more than 3,500 man hours to beautify and refurbish the Ogden Nature Center as part of Lifetime's 8th Annual Community Service Project. Employees worked together Saturday morning tackling a list of projects simultaneously including removing weeds (specifically one invasive weed named Dyer’s Woad); planting flowers, shrubs, and plants; and painting fences and picnic tables to help beautify and improve the center's grounds and facilities.
Each year, Lifetime employees join forces and participate in a large group project to give back to neighboring communities. The project is always conducted off-the-clock and earns employees a credit toward Lifetime’s employee benefit program that gives a percentage of the company’s revenue to each employee.
“Lifetime is more than just products. We’re people who make a difference in everything we do – both inside and outside of our factory walls,” said Lifetime President Richard Hendrickson. “We’re proud to be a worldwide company, but it’s important to us to always give back to the community here at home where we operate and are headquartered. Our annual community service project is a monumental way for us to make a difference in our local area. It’s truly inspiring and heart-warming to watch over a thousand people working together to improve where they live and work.”
Located in the heart of Ogden, the Ogden Nature Center is a 152-acre nature preserve and education center open to the public year-round. Visitors enjoy 1.5 miles of walking trails, picnic areas, tree houses, bird blinds and an exhibit of live birds of prey. Two of Utah's greenest buildings are on site to teach about sustainable structures. A unique gift shop is located in the Visitor Center. The Ogden Nature Center offers a wide variety of classes & workshops for all ages including art, photography, birding, wildlife in Utah, outdoor recreation, conservation, sustainability, summer camps and more.
