On January 16, join National Park Service staff at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site to volunteer on Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Day of Service. Meet park staff at the visitor center at 1500 Fort Raleigh Road in Manteo to help with the removal of vegetation along the site’s roadways from 10 am to 12 pm.
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 their parent or legal guardian with them.
In 1994, to recognize Dr. King’s incredible legacy of service, Congress designated the 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.”
