MLK Pope Branch Park Cleanup
Cleanup Event

January 15, 2018, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Come out this MLK day to brave the cold and do your part to leave our local parks cleaner and more beautiful.

This collaborative event celebrates the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and the memory of Joseph Glover, Founder and Chair of Pope Branch Park Restoration Alliance.

Weather won't stop us, we'll be hosting rain, snow, or shine! Everything you'll need is provided. Please wear closed-toe shoes and get-dirty clothing that will protect you from brush.

We’re excited to team up with Lyft to offer you a cheaper way to rideshare to this event! Use this code (RIVERKEEPERMLK) to cover 20% off your ride to the event, up to $5. Street parking and public transportation are also available.
