Join River Watchers and the community for a MLK Jr Day of Service Cleanup and Restoration Volunteer Event on Monday, January 20th from 10am to 12pm at Buttermilk Creek & Park.
On Monday, January 20, 2020, millions will come together to volunteer and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, who never stopped asking the question, "What are you doing for others?" The MLK Jr Day of Service is a moment to work together to fulfill King's vision for a better America - it's a day "on" instead of a day off.
Join the River Watchers for our MLK Jr Day of Service event to help clean and restore Buttermilk Creek in Buttermilk Park, with our friends at the St. John Neighborhood Association! Volunteer activities will include: removing trash from the Buttermilk Park Greenbelt and creek area, planting native plants, and learning about water quality. (All tools and supplies will be provided.)
Location and parking:
Buttermilk Park and Creek are located behind the St. John Community Center/St. John Branch Library, 7500 Blessing Ave., Austin, TX 78752. Parking is available in the lot in front of the library.
