MLK DAY OF SERVICE–2017 Walker Creek Ranch School & Conference Center

Martin Luther King Day is a day of service in many parts of the country. This year 60 employee volunteers (including family members in some cases) from Kaiser Permanente’s Sonoma & Marin facilities and 20 AmeriCorps Volunteers participated in the MLK Day of Service at the Walker Creek Ranch School and Conference Center

Rebuilding Together Petaluma (RTP) coordinated and managed their efforts–which is how I came to be there!

On top of accomplishing an enormous amount of warehouse clearing, the volunteers engaged in storm drain clearing, pond algae removal, outdoor clean up and filling 4 large dumpsters to the brim. Kaiser is also funding the purchase of some much needed lodge furniture for Walker Creek Ranch.

Below are a few images, photo galleries, and one slide show from the day. At the end  of the article I have included a link to a more complete set of photos

MLK Day 2015–A Day Of Service…At The Ranch…

…Walker Creek Ranch to be precise…

Over 70 volunteers (including family members in some cases) from area Kaiser Permanente facilities  and Rebuilding Together Petaluma (RTP) spent the day at WALKER CREEK RANCH — the Marin County Outdoor School & Conference Center.

They took on many projects in the garden and facility buildings, as well as clearing brush, and planting trees.

To give a sense of the energy and enthusiasm of the volunteers, a few photos are in order!
