Join the TMPF team for the MLK Day of Service, a national event to honor Martin Luther King Jr.!

Stop by for the entire program, or for only twenty minutes—we’d love to see you there!

Free and open to all ages



When? Monday, January 21st, 2019 from 9:00am to 12:00pm

Where? Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park


We will be cataloging all living things in the park as part of an annual phenology project, to garner a better understanding of the plants, animals, and other wildlife and how their populations are changing. We will transect the park, and each volunteer will be responsible for recording all the plants, animals, and wildlife they see along their transect or section. TMPF will provide more detailed field guides, pictures, and tools such as aspirators, magnifying glasses, and forceps to allow citizens at all levels of comfortability to participate, collect, and identify the changing ecology of our local parks. This is a wonderful and non-traditional volunteer opportunity and will allow volunteers to participate in an ongoing project, as well as a way to get outside and enjoy one of our many beautiful county parks.

Please contact our office at (775) 410-1702 or with any questions, concerns, or comments.
