MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated by Congress as a national day of service - “a day on, not a day off.” Please join us in service at the Underwood Hills Park, helping to spruce things up in preparation for a tree planting event and upcoming improvements to the playground area and lower field. Tasks include picking up litter and broken equipment, clearing downed branches, pressure washing the playground steps and covering graffiti. Please bring your own work gloves and water. If anyone has a chainsaw and/or a pressure washer that you'd be willing to bring and operate, please email email@example.com. And if you can’t join us at the event, please consider picking up any rubbish around your house or on your street. Any little bit helps!

Help us plant new trees in Underwood Hills Park to help sustain our urban forest and increase plant diversity in the greenspace. These trees will provide cleaner air, cool shade, and all around improved habitat for humans and wildlife living in our community. Planting tasks include digging holes with shovels/mattocks, untangling roots with your hands, mulching, watering, and cleaning up your area. Physical activity such as bending, lifting, and kneeling is required. Tree planting can be physically strenuous - be ready to break a sweat and get dirty!
In the past 2-week period (Dec 17 - 30), 43 incidents were reported in Beat 204. Of those, two occurred in the area we patrol.
