MLK Day of Service at Carlson Meadow

January 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us at Carlson Meadow (at the intersection of Carlson Blvd and Ohio Ave), and celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service with friends, family and neighbors. Sign up here to be a part of this annual festive and inspiration event!

 From 9am – 12pm, we will be finishing our new park on the Richmond Greenway by planting native plants, weeding and mulching, and learning how bioswales and rain gardens filter and clean street runoff. We will provide tools, gloves, and water, but if you can bring your own, we’ll have more to share. Please bring your own reusable water bottle if possible. Wear sturdy closed-toed shoes and clothes that can get dirty.

Space is limited; groups must preregister. To participate, all participants must sign a waiver.

-Heavy rain cancels, but we will be out there in the sun, fog, and light drizzle. If it is rainy, it is a great opportunity to see low impact design (bioswales and rain gardens) in action!

mlkHistory 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.
