MLK Day of Service in the Mapleton Preserve

Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands has decided on short notice to host a cleanup event on Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 18, 2021, in the Mapleton Preserve from 1 to 2:30 pm. The fields in the Preserve were brush-cut last fall to start to improve the quality of the habitat. This left a lot of wood debris on the inner paths of the fields, making walking difficult. At this event FPNL will be mostly picking up this debris and litter, but there will be something left to do for everyone.

All are welcome, but COVID-19 guidelines must be followed and masks must be worn at the event. Work gloves and tools will be provided, but please bring your own water or snacks. Dress for the weather, whatever it is.

Preregistration is requested. Phone (609-683-0483) or email Karen Linder ( to let her know that you are coming so they do not exceed Park COVID capacity guidelines.
