“Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Designated as a federal holiday in 1938 MLK Jr. Day celebrates the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This day honors his legacy by being the only federal holiday recognized as a national day of service that encourages citizens to be empowered and get involved with their communities.

Join Pinnacles as we make it a day on and not a day off with a service project in the park on Monday, January 15th.  Meet at the East Entrance Visitor Center at 8:45 am for registration. Service projects will begin at 9am.

The service projects will be about four hours long wrapping up at 1pm. Service projects include invasive species removal, trail maintenance, and litter abatement. Come prepared with sturdy shoes, a water bottle and a great attitude. All tools and necessary personal protection equipment will be provided by the park as well as water. Service projects are family friendly. All are welcome! Volunteers for the event will also have their park entrance fee waived if they participate so they can hike in park afterwards!

Groups over 15 please contact our Volunteer Office to register. Children under 18 need a parental release form signed.
