Guardians of the Greenbelt,

Our next workday is on Saturday March 03, the Austin Parks Foundation’s spring “It’s My Park Day”. We’ll be working from 9:00 – 12:00 at the Barton Creek Greenbelt Homedale access, 2010 Homedale Drive. Along with our partners from Austin Parks and Rec, we’ll be doing lots of invasive plant removal, some runoff management and trail repairs, and the usual trimming, weeding, graffiti removal, and trash pick up in the area.

Registration has been open for a while, but we can still use more volunteers. Please go to APF’s website here to sign up for our project. You can also reply to Stan or Glee using the email links below if you have any questions or problems with online registration.

As usual, we’ll have breakfast tacos for everyone and water to refill your bottles. We have tasks that are appropriate for a wide range of ages and skill sets. Kids are welcome, but younger ones will need to bring a parent along with them, and anyone under 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign the waiver. We’ll provide the team leaders and tools needed for all of the tasks. Please bring a water bottle, a pair of work gloves (if you have them), and wear closed-toe shoes. Long pants and long sleeves will also help to protect against poison ivy.

We’re looking forward to another good workday and hoping that a lot of you can join us!
