Typically, Timucuan Parks Foundation hosts a cleanup at a preservation park to honor King and provide a service opportunity to our community. This year, because we are not able to host an event open to the public, we encourage you to spend the MLK holiday outside doing something yourself to improve your community.
We suggest getting a small group of friends or family together to lead a park cleanup of your own. Visit our parks page to pick a location — then grab some trash bags, gloves, water and snacks then head out to a local park.
Dedicate your time in support of nature by cleaning up litter on trails, on shorelines, or in the parking lots. We encourage you to share pictures from your day of service with us. Tag us on social media with @timucuanparks.
For students, TPF will be kicking off the latest Student Self-Guided Cleanup program on MLK Day. Visit the Self-Guided page for directions on how to earn your community service hours while helping to maintain the health and beauty of our parks and preserves. The Student Self-Guided Cleanup program will run through March 14.
