Representative McNerney is encouraging his constituents to engage in volunteer programs throughout the month of January, in honor of the National Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.

The Congressman and volunteers from the local non-profit organization Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed (FOMCW) will plant additional native plants adjacent to the trail, at the corner of Concord Avenue and Creek Road in Brentwood. The FOMCW started a native plant demonstration garden with the City of Brentwood and the East Bay Regional Park District on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 2009, and have tended the garden since then. The East Bay Regional Park District and the City of Brentwood jointly maintain this section of the Marsh Creek Trail.
