What is the MLK Day of Service?
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"
Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.
The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.
The Stewardship Program invites you, your family, group or organization to join us for a Day of Service. Join us as we continue the important work of restoring Cottonwood Creek. Our project is located on the Hallowell Ranch close to the Madera entrance of Millerton Lake State Park. We will be planting along Little Sheep Creek which drains into Cottonwood Creek, a historical salmon stream. Entering the San Joaquin River just below Friant Dam, Cottonwood Creek is a vital source for woody debris and nutrients for salmon that will be overwintering in the area.
