MLK Woodland Restoration Project in Franklin Park

On MLK Day, SCI will host a volunteer woodland restoration event in Franklin Park followed by a historic walk and reflection session on Martin Luther King Jr and service.  SCI is pleased to have received the funding for this opportunity through the Massachusetts Service Alliance's 2014 MLK Day Grant.

Through the collaboration of SCI’s host partner sites, the Franklin Park Coalition will join DotWell and the Millennium Ten Initiative to host a service day on January 20, 2014 to honor Martin Luther King Jr.  

Volunteer Focus: Removal of cat briar (a prickly vine that strangles trees) and trash removal from Franklin Park.  The project will begin with a brief introduction to the park, woodland restoration and Martin Luther King Jr.’s focus on community and the importance of service.  

Date and Location: January 20th with a start up location at the Valley Gates Parking Lot off of Circuit Drive in Franklin Park.  Please follow this link for more detailed walking directions from Green St. Station.  

Time: 10am until 1:30pm with the last 30 minutes focusing on a reflection about MLK, service, and the significance of Franklin Park to the African-American community.
