Timucuan Parks Foundation needs volunteers for MLK Day of Service on Monday, Jan. 20. It is a nationwide observance celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The nonprofit organization and their City of Jacksonville park partner will be leading projects, including invasive plant removal, trail maintenance and shoreline cleanup, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park at 500 Wonderwood Dr.
Identify yourself as a volunteer to park staff at the front gate and meet at 9 a.m. at the lakefront parking lot. Wear closed-toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Bring work gloves and loppers/clippers if you have them, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat, sunglasses and water in a reusable water bottle. Timucuan Parks Foundation will have additional work gloves, equipment and supplies and will also provide Nature Valley granola bar snacks and water.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Those under 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or youth leader during the project. Volunteers are eligible for community service hours. To receive a waiver or for more information, visit timucuanparks.org/volunteer/ or contact Felicia Boyd at 904-463-1799 or email@example.com. The MLK Day of Service is done in partnership with the City of Jacksonville with funding support from REI.
