This year, MLK Park will continue the tradition, and add a few new ones! Stop by to pick up some gloves and trash bags so you can help us clean up the park and our neighborhood.
While at the Park, check out information tables and earthy-friendly activities like making a seed bomb, playing a recycling game, and learning how to help our friends, the pollinators. Be sure to bring your unwanted seeds for a great seed swap, and your old cell phones and chargers for on-site cell phone recycling by TechDump.
