Natural Awakenings Ann Arbor Michigan

Volunteer with Natural Area Preservation on MLK Day

Jan 02, 2018 12:00AM
The city of Ann Arbor Natural Area Preservation will lead Ann Arbor residents in volunteer service from 1 to 3 p.m., January 15, at Barton Nature Area, to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. They will join hundreds of thousands of people across the country on this national day of service, answering King’s call to serve and make a difference in their community.

The volunteers will be helping protect biodiversity by removing invasive shrubs such as honeysuckle and buckthorn. Those interested should meet at the Barton Dam parking lot on Huron River Drive and also dress in layers and wear shoes suitable for snow or wet ground. All participants must complete a release form; and all minors should be accompanied by a guardian. Tools, snacks and know-how are provided.

The MLK Day of Service is led by the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that engages millions of Americans in service through AmeriCorps, Senior Corps and Volunteer Generation Fund programs, and leads the nation’s volunteering and service efforts.
