Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service 11:00am – 2:00pm

Sign Up Here!

Location: Richland Park

Do you want to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with service to your community? Are you looking to extend your impact beyond MLK Day? Come learn about how you can Grab the Litter in your neighborhoods to prevent it from washing into our streams, creeks, and rivers! Litter is one of the most critical issues for urban waterways, as everything that that is dripped, dropped, or spilled on the pavement is washed through the storm sewer system into the waterways. Each volunteer will get a #grabthelitter bag to take home and reuse many times so they can continue this practice beyond MLK day and make a lasting collective impact on our waterways. Volunteers will then independently fill their #grabthelitter bag by collecting litter. We will then sort the litter together into trash and recycling to be taken to the proper disposal location. Stop by Richland Park any time between 11:00am-2:00pm, and stay as long as you like! We will provide bags, gloves, and guidance! You can come and go as you please and pick up as many bag loads of litter as you want. We look forward to seeing you there 🙂

11 AM – 2 PM.

Help restore Richland Creek habitats! Sign up to volunteer. You can take the skills you learn home with you to combat the city-wide invasive plant problem.

We are removing 3 primary invasive plants from habitats so the old trees can survive, and the new trees have room to grow. This project is part of our Riparian Renewal program that builds resilience and biodiversity back into Richland Creek habitats. Learn more about our Riparian Renewal program.

Park at the Wyoming Trailhead, located on the corner of 51st Avenue and Wyoming Avenue. There is also street parking on Wyoming Avenue; please do not block driveways or traffic when parking on the street.  Then take a short walk on the Greenway to our project site (see map below).


Wear your work clothes, shoes or boots, and dress for the current weather conditions.  We will provide tools and gloves, but feel free to bring your own. There will be pizza afterwords for volunteers.

If we need to reschedule due to weather conditions, we’ll post the change here and email you if you’ve signed up.
