We will be engaging in many fun activities that help improve the health of this beautiful park, including:
*Restore habitat by planting native plant species (read more about why planting native plants encourages thriving ecosystems and biodiversity here)
*Removing invasive plant species from the shoreline
*Picking up trash from the shoreline before it becomes marine debris (read more here about why we don’t want more trash in the ocean)
-Free refreshments will be provided as you work hard to clean our shoreline!
-We will provide tools, gloves and buckets, but bring your own if you can so everyone has a chance to pitch in. Don’t forget your own reusable water bottle, if you have one!
-Wear comfortable clothing that might get dirty and sturdy closed-toe shoes.
-Children are welcome, but MUST be accompanied by an adult and those under 18 require a waiver signed by a legal guardian.
-This is a great opportunity for school and volunteer groups, but please let us know your group is coming so we can plan our supplies (and snacks!) accordingly.

-Heavy rain cancels, but we will be out there in the sun, fog, and light drizzle.

History of the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service:
In 1994 Congress designated Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a national day of volunteer service.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. sought to forge the common ground on which people from all walks of life could join together to address important community issues. The King Day of Service brings together people who might not ordinarily meet, breaks down barriers that have divided us in the past, leads to better understanding and ongoing relationships.
