“Martin Luther King devoted his life to advancing equality, social justice, and opportunity for all, and taught us that everyone has a role to play in making America what it ought to be,” said Christine Chessler-Stull, the park steward coordinator at NAP.
Volunteers are encouraged to layer their clothing. NAP will provide handsaws, loppers, thermal gloves, snacks and guidance.
The event is all-ages, but minors are required to have a waiver form signed by an adult in order to participate.
