Timucuan Parks Foundation was joined by more than 40 volunteers on Monday for the MLK Day of Service Event at Blue Cypress Park in Arlington. The group, who ranged in age from 8 to 80, spent the morning cleaning up litter from under the boardwalk and along the shoreline of the St. Johns River.
Volunteers included TPF’s Trail Team, members of TPF’s new Young Professionals Group, a group of students from Sandalwood High School, volunteers from MW Builders, and others who had heard or read about the event from various news sources. The volunteers collected 62 bags of trash and wood that had washed ashore.
MLK Day of Service is a nationwide observance celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. TPF thanks all the volunteers who came out to help. The MLK Day event was done in partnership with JaxParks. For more information on how to volunteer with TPF for its next cleanup event, visit https://www.timucuanparks.org/volunteer/.
