Event description

Description

Join us at Carlson Meadow (at the intersection of Carlson Blvd and Ohio Ave), and celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service with friends, family and neighbors. Be a part of this annual festive and inspirational event!

From 9am – 12pm, we will be finishing our new park on the Richmond Greenway by planting native plants, weeding and mulching, and learning how bioswales and rain gardens filter and clean street runoff. We will provide gloves, tools, and water, but if you can bring your own, we’ll have more to share. Please bring your own reusable water bottle if possible. Wear sturdy closed-toed shoes and clothes that can get dirty.

Space is limited; groups must preregister. To participate, all participants must sign a waiver.

  • Children are welcome, but MUST be accompanied by an adult and those under 18 require a waiver signed by a legal guardian.

  • Valid for Community Service hours.

  • Heavy rain cancels, but we will be out there in the sun, fog, and light drizzle. If it is rainy, it is a great opportunity to see our low impact design (bioswales and rain gardens) in action!

Please RSVP for this free event!

Why RSVP for a free event? It helps our organizing team plan for the event, and ensures they will bring enough supplies (gloves, buckets, bags, etc.) and staff to make the event as successful as possible. Thank you for helping out!

For more information or waivers, please contact Sharon: sharon@thewatershedproject.org, (510) 665-3430

We look forward to seeing you at Carlson Meadow!
