Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Caring: Whittier Park!

Monday, January 21, 2019

Do you ever think about how you are connected to your local park and the critters in it? We know we do! That's why we're inviting you to come and help make Whittier park a better place for nature and people in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Do you ever think about how you are connected to your local park and the critters in it? With Martin Luther King Jr Day coming up we've been thinking about what he said about our interconnectedness.

"It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny." -M.L.K. Jr

In that spirit, let's strengthen that "network of mutuality" this MLK day and improve this hidden nature oasis so that it can be a get away from urban sprawl for the people and the critters we love! 

Activities include:

  • Trail building
  • Adding a layer of wood chips to help sustain the plants through the winter and into the summer
  • Removal of harmful plants

Training: We'll provide all the training you'll need!

To bring:

  • Water!
  • Warm clothes that can get dirty
  • Your friends and family :-)

Be sure to dress warmly and wear clothes you can get dirty in!
