Events to be held Sat., Jan. 13 and Mon., Jan. 15
VANCOUVER — Clark County Parks is seeking volunteers to assist with two service projects at Lacamas Lake Regional Park in conjunction with Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
On Sat., Jan. 13, volunteers will team up with the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance for trail maintenance. Please meet in the parking lot at Woodburn Elementary School, 2400 NE Woodburn Drive, Camas.
On Mon., Jan. 15, volunteers will partner with Clark County Parks to remove non-native Scotch broom and English ivy. Please meet in the Lacamas Lake Regional Park overflow parking lot at 406 NE 35th Ave., Camas.
Both events start at 9 a.m. and end at noon. Organizers believe that having two work parties for this national day of service will offer greater opportunity for volunteers to give back to their community and honor the legacy of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The events will take place rain or shine. Volunteers should wear long pants, closed-toe shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. Tools, gloves and light refreshments will be provided.
To register for either event, go to www.clark.wa.gov/public-works/volunteer or call (360) 397-6118 ext. 1627. Children younger than 18 must provide a signed minor consent form, which is available at www.clark.wa.gov/public-works/volunteer-forms.
This and other events improve communities and honor Dr. King, the revered civil rights leader assassinated in 1968. Congress designated Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a national day of service in 1994.
