In 1994, to recognize Dr. King’s incredible legacy of service, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) federal holiday as a national day of service to leverage the strength of local citizens to help tackle local problems and advance King’s dream of opportunity for all. MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a “day on, not a day off.”

Join National Park Service staff on Monday, January 18 at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site in Manteo. Volunteer on this day of national service and help with the removal of vegetation along the site’s roadway and trails from 10-12 pm. Meet park staff at the Lindsay Warren Visitor Center.

Bring leather gloves, eye protection (i.e. sunglasses), water, snacks, and bug spray. Wear appropriate clothing, including closed toe shoes, pants, and long sleeve shirts. Children under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian with them.
