Several events are happening in Tucker on Monday, Jan. 21, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
The first of these is a project of Friends of Tucker Nature Preserve, which is collaborating with Trees Atlanta to plant 150 new saplings along the Lawrenceville Highway corridor to help block noise pollution.
Volunteers are asked to bring shovels, pitchforks, work gloves, tarps, and wheel barrows in order to plant small flowering trees, shrubs, and native hardwoods along the street. There will also be mulching, and the plan is to work from 9:30 a.m. until noon.
Northlake's Panera Bread is supplying bagels and cream cheese, and there will be coffee and water available as well.
Please park at WalMart across the street and cross at the crosswalk, or at the Cofer Library and walk the half block up to the Preserve.
If you plan to bring a group, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is one of a number of volunteer clean-ups happening around Tucker on MLK Day. Email Randy Shepley at email@example.com for other location details.
