Cleanup Event for Martin Luther King Day

The members of the Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands invite you to join them on Monday, January 16, 2012, for a cleanup at the Mapleton Preserve on the National Day of Service honoring the 26th anniversary of the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday. From noon to 3 pm volunteers will be clearing small trees, brush, vines and trash in the historic Mapleton Preserve. You are asked to bring any tools you may have, such as saws, clippers, loppers and rakes. Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather—work gloves, sturdy shoes, warm clothing and hats are recommended. For more information, visit the FPNL website or call 609-683-0483. Mapleton Preserve/D&R Canal State Park is located at 145 Mapleton Road in Kingston.
