Wildlife refuge to celebrate King anniversary with service project

The Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge is planning a community service project from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday, Jan. 21, to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

Volunteers are needed to help prepare prairie seeds for planting. All activities will occur indoors. People of all ages and abilities are welcome to serve, and no experience is necessary.  Instruction will be provided for everyone. Sign up in advance by contacting Michelle Garcia at michelle_garcia@fws.gov or (515) 994-3400. Walk-ins are also welcome.  

Attendees will join hundreds of thousands of Americans across the country in making the holiday a day on, not a day off. The Corporation for National and Community Service leads the annual MLK Day of Service, working with the King Center in Atlanta and thousands of nonprofit groups, faith-based organizations, and schools and businesses nationwide.

By serving on this holiday, Americans of every age and background celebrate Dr. King through service projects that strengthen communities, empower individuals and bridge barriers.
