    A propane energy group is donating new alternative-fuel lawn mowers to the National Mall and Memorial Parks.

    The Propane Education and Research Council donated six new propane-fueled mowers to the National Park Service on Monday. The group says the mowers will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and will replace diesel-fueled mowers.

    The donation amounts to about $70,000 in equipment.

    In a statement, National Mall Superintendent Bob Vogel said the propane mowers will help the park meets its sustainability goals.
