Greenbelt Fans,

We hope you will join us for our next workday on Saturday June 2, from 8-Noon, to do some important tasks on the Gus Fruh portion of the greenbelt. We will meet at 8:00 sharp at the Gus Fruh entry at 2642 Barton Hills Drive for sign-in, breakfast tacos, a group photo, and task orientation. We are planning some important trail repair and resurfacing work, retaining wall construction, and invasives removal and monitoring. We’ll also do some weeding, edging, and pruning in the front entry area. We will need lots of hands to help, and hope that you will be able to join us to assist.

There are lots of enticements: Maria’s tacos for breakfast, lush beauty on the trails due to the spring rains, camaraderie with other greenbelt lovers, AND a lunch party afterwards outside Barton Springs, sponsored by the Hill Country Conservancy. This work day celebrates National Trails Day, and numerous other volunteer groups will be working on other areas of the greenbelt. The Austin Parks Foundation is providing the overall organization and registration for the various volunteer groups.

To volunteer with us at Gus Fruh, please RSVP directly to this address so that we get an accurate count for our planning, and ALSO register on the Austin Parks Foundation web site so they can accurately plan for the overall event and after-party food and drinks. Thank you!

We’re looking forward to a great work day and hope to see you there!
