First Creek - 2nd Annual MLK Weekend Cleanup Event
Monday, January 17th, 2011 from 10:00am to 1:00pm
East Fairbanks St, two blocks east of Portland Ave., Tacoma, 98404
First Creek, named for the fact that it is the first creek you encounter while walking upstream from the mouth of the Puyallup River, is getting a facelift as neighbors, students, and community groups join forces and reclaim the beauty of this little stream. This is a second annual Martin Luther King Jr. holiday event where First Creek Middle School and UW-Tacoma are hosting an English ivy and weed pull in preparation for future replanting. The work party will take place 10am to 1pm, on N. Fairbanks St., two blocks east of Portland Ave.
