National Day of Service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.!
Indian Creek Natural Area (Outer Southeast) – ivy removal
Monday, January 21, 9:00 AM-1:00 PM
Join Johnson Creek Watershed Council and Portland Parks & Recreation to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Junior’s life and work to advance civil rights. Dr. Martin Luther King Junior dedicated his life to service and selflessness. To honor his legacy, we will participate in reflective conversation and activities in addition to our site enhancement work. If you have a favorite quote, story or photo of Dr. King that you wish to share, feel free to bring it with you. We’ll start the day by sharing with each other (if you wish) how Dr. King has inspired you. Why do you serve your community through volunteering? What does upholding civil rights and social justice give back to the community, and how does this reveal itself in our shared natural areas? These are just some of the questions we hope to reflect on in dialogue with each other, as we remove ivy and help to protect the native plants and trees in this shared public space. Everyone is welcome, and no experience necessary! Wear long thick pants, a long-sleeved shirt and sturdy shoes. Wear warm clothes—it can get cold and windy! Bring a water bottle, rain gear and sunhat. Instruction, tools, gloves, water, coffee/tea and snacks provided. Children welcome and must be accompanied by an attentive adult.
