MLK Jr. Day 2024 Stewardship Events with Green Kirkland
Join the Green Kirkland Partnership for a day of habitat stewardship on MLK Jr. Day Monday January 15, 2024 at a volunteer stewardship event in Kirkland Parks.
Volunteers will help restore critical habitat by removing invasive plants such as blackberry or ivy, planting native plants, and pitching-in with stewardship tasks like mulching and weeding. With your help, your parks will have healthy and thriving natural areas for years to come!
