Projects that day will include making many improvements along the Richmond Greenway Trail and a memorial for Martin Luther King Jr. Refreshments for volunteers will be served and local speakers, a DJ and children’s activities will be on hand.

A whole host of partners are involved in the event, including Groundwork Richmond, Rich City Rides’ Moving Forward, Hope Worldwide, The Watershed Project, Contra Costa Resource Conservation District, Building Blocks for Kids Richmond, Cal Cameron Institute, Friends of the Richmond Greenway and Pogo Park.
