MLK Day of Service 2016 | Volunteer In The Parks

“Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a day off for most of us in the U.S., but you can take a “day on” and find a volunteer opportunity – especially to help out in your parks and nature areas.

Volunteer in the Golden Gate National Parks at your doorstep and help grow and restore these cherished national parklands. It’s fun, it’s healthy, and it makes a difference—the perfect way to pitch in on a momentous day.
