There's a lot happening around campus this week, starting with a volunteer opportunity for Monday's MLK Day of Service:

MLK Day of Service with the UW Farm and UW Society for Ecological Restoration

Join the UW Farm for a day of planting, weeding, and mulching around our hedgerow of native trees and shrubs just south of the UW Farm's Center for Urban Horticulture location.

This is your chance to help native bees, butterflies, and numerous other insects by creating an inviting pollinator habitat and increasing biodiversity of the area. Meet us at the southern edge of the farm, close to Wahkiakum Trail Lane. Equipment and snacks will be provided.

Time: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
