Event Overview

Please join TMC and the Dallas/Fort Worth Platoon for an Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Project. Volunteers will be participating in the 4th annual Fish Creek Clean Up Challenge, beautifying 8 miles of the Fish Creek Linear Trail. Volunteers will meet at Fish Creek Neighborhood Park and disperse from there along the 8 miles of linear trail. In previous years volunteers removed up to 8 1/2 tons of trash from Fish Creek, Fish Creek Linear Trail, connected parks, and surrounding wooded areas. With support from the City of Arlington and the City of Grand Prairie, all volunteers will need to do is bag it up and get it to the paved trail or nearest sidewalk. Check-in will start at 8. The cleanup will begin at 8:30. Lunch afterward starting at noon. Come for 30 minutes or all day. Some picking tools will be provided as well as bags and gloves. With 8 miles there is LOTS of room to social distance! Masks are at the discretion of each volunteer per local and state guidelines.
