Employees from Six Flags Magic Mountain experienced a different kind of thrill Thursday: helping the community.

As part of the corporation’s Project 6 Day, 200 employees traded their usual activities in the theme park for a day of service in Santa Clarita Valley.

Project 6 is an annual day of service where the entire Six Flags Corporation stops their daily activities to volunteer in local communities.

Ninety acres of the open space burned  in the Sage Fire in July of 2016.   Two hundred Six Flags Magic Mountain employees worked at  planting new vegetation at three Santa Clarita burn locations as part of the company's  annual Day of Service aimed at improving the overall quality of the community.

In Santa Clarita, Magic Mountain employees worked on the revegetation project to help the areas impacted by the Sand Fire, Sage Fire and Calgrove Fire.

Employees wore gloves, raked the land and planted seeds in Iron Horse Trail/Round Mountain, Towsley Canyon / Rivendale Park and Open Space and Wildwood.
