Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service and Bioblitz

Event Dates and Times

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park Reno
The Day of Service Bioblitz is free and open to volunteers of all ages. We will be cataloging all living things in the park as part of a annual phenology project, to garner a better understanding of the plants, animals, and other wildlife and how their populations are changing. We will transect the park, and each volunteer will be responsible for recording all the plants, animals, and wildlife they see along their transect, or section. TMPF will provide more detailed field guides, pictures, and tools such as aspirators, magnifying glasses, and forceps to allow citizens at all levels of comfortability to participate, collect, and identify the changing ecology of our local parks. This is a wonderful and non-traditional volunteer opportunity, and will allow volunteers to participate in an ongoing project, as well as to get outside and enjoy one of our many beautiful county parks.

We will also provide bags and trash picker kits for clean up at the park as well.

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park is located on the corner of Coretta Way and Kennedy Drive in Reno, NV 89506. Stop by for the entire program, or for only twenty minutes—we’d love to see you there! Please contact Matt Webber at or 775-410-1702 with any questions.

TMPF is an independent, 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting parks in Truckee Meadows including Washoe County, Reno, and Sparks parks. To learn more please visit our website at
