Location Details:
Shimada Friendship Park. Directions: From I-580, exit at S. 23rd St/Marina Bay Pkwy. Head towards the Bay onto S. 23rd St. Continue on Marina Bay Pkwy and turn left after Breakers into Shimada Friendship Park. Follow signs along the Bay Trail towards the beach.

Celebrate an exciting turning point in American history this month by joining The Watershed Project on Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service. Come out with your family, neighbors and friends and be a part of this festive and inspirational event.

Give back to our community by helping to clean up the shoreline and care for one of Richmond’s lovely waterfront parks. There will be opportunities to plant and tend to drought tolerant and wildlife friendly gardens, control invasive weeds, and create collaborative art sculptures by reusing collected trash, debris and weeds. You can learn about native plants and their many uses, join the fennel patrol, and tally trash to take a snapshot of what is polluting our Bay.

Make Martin Luther King Jr. Day a day on rather than a day off. Spend a few hours honoring the memory of Dr. King by taking action to improve our community.

“The Watershed Project hopes the cleanup will be a catalyst for instilling a stewardship ethic in participants,” says Linda Hunter, Executive Director of The Watershed Project.

Free refreshments will be served, and tools and gloves will be provided. However, please bring your own if you have them--especially loppers for removing fennel--to make sure everyone gets a chance to pitch in. Please wear comfortable clothing and sturdy shoes. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Event Partners: The Watershed Project, Richmond Shoreline Citizen Response, City of Richmond, and local artists.
