Park District Seeks Volunteers for Day of Service at Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline By EBRPD Public Affairs

1/3/2018

The East Bay Regional Park District invites the community to a morning of hands-on engagement at Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline in Oakland.

Each year, in celebration of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the District hosts a volunteer work day annually at the park named in his honor. Volunteers will restore the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Grove and nearby Damon Marsh by removing litter and invasive plants.

Volunteers are asked to register online in advance. Children are welcome to participate, but a chaperone must accompany every 20 kids under the age of 16. Comfortable, weather-appropriate clothes and closed-toe shoes are recommended.

Also, to cut down on the use of plastic, please bring a refillable water bottle and a bucket to pick up litter. Gloves are provided.
