MLK Day 2017 Shepherd Canyon Park

January 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm


MLK Day of ServicePlease join us Monday, January 16th, 2017 as we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. National Service Day. This is a “rain or shine” event.

Volunteer Activity: planting and sowing seeds for California native wildflowers and bunch grasses, making trail improvements, and creating monarch butterfly habitat. We are transforming a former dump into a place of natural beauty.

Great event for adults, students and families.
