Join the Green Kirkland Partnership and United Way of King County for MLK Jr Day of service at Crestwoods Park. Volunteers will spend the morning participating in restoration activities that may include removing invasive plants like English ivy and Himalayan blackberry, applying mulch, and planting native trees, shrubs and ground covers. No experience is necessary and we encourage volunteers of all ages to join us! This event will be led by a volunteer Green Kirkland Steward.
