2019 Total Debris Collected:

MLK Day of Service: Monday, January 21

Project: Tree and bush trimming, wood chipping and brush removal, Los Osos Community Park
12 Volunteers, 36 total volunteer hours

On Monday, January 21, 12 volunteers from AmeriCorps CivicSpark came out from far and wide to volunteer their time and energy this Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. At Los Osos Community Park, they helped with tree trimming, removing potentially dangerous and damaging limbs from trees and removed brush in order to allow them to continue to grow healthily and safely. The group also helped with bush trimming, cutting back some shrubs and bushes allowing a better view of the park overall and more room for other native plants to grow. Thank you, AmeriCorps CivicSpark, for your hard work!
