First Creek Middle School - Marting Luther King Day
Community Work Party

Community clean-up schedule for Monday morning January 18th,
Martin Luther King Day.

The location is behind the new First Creek Middle School located off Portland Avenue near East 54th

Time: 9:30 - Noon. Look for an open gate near the Northern end of the school for parking, then walk around the back of the playfields towards the woods.

This event is being organized by First Creek Middle School and University of Washington Tacoma along with Chris Ott with the City of Tacoma. First Creek Neighbors have been asked to support this event by helping with litter and trash pickup behind the school. Please try to attend if possible.

The First Creek Students will be working with the UWT students learning to cut English Ivy from the trees and doing some water quality monitoring in the actual creek. There are only twnety-eight trees with Ivy and they are easily accessed. If you have cutting tools please bring them.
