Martin Luther King Jr. Day is the only federal holiday designated as a National Day of Service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.

Join in at White Clay Creek State Park! There are two shifts available on Monday, January 15, 9-11am and 1-3pm, to remove invasive plants and help restore habitat at the Judge Morris Estate section of the park.

The work will range from easy hand-pulling of small plants to removal of large shrubs and trees, to cutting and piling plant debris.  This is a great way to learn more about invasive plants and the ecology of the park. This volunteer effort has won awards from the State of Delaware for dedication to the park and has received numerous grants to support the ongoing effort
