Guardians of the Greenbelt,

Our next workday is coming up fast: the Austin Parks Foundation’s fall “It’s My Park Day” on Saturday November 4th.  We’ll be working from 9:00 – 12:00 at the Barton Creek Greenbelt Homedale access, 2010 Homedale Drive.  In conjunction with our partners at Austin Parks and Rec, we’ll be doing some trail repairs and runoff management, building some rock steps, removing invasives, trimming and weeding, removing graffiti, and picking up trash in the area.

Registration is open now!  Please go to the Austin Parks Foundation’s Get Pulse website here to sign up for our project. You can also reply to this email if you have any questions or problems with online registration.

As always, we’ll have breakfast tacos for everyone and plenty of water to refill your bottles. We have tasks that are appropriate for a wide range of ages and skill sets, so don’t think you’re too old or young to help!  (We love kids, but younger ones should be sure to bring a parent along with them. 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 help to protect against poison ivy which, like everything else, is thriving in the greenbelt now due to all the rain we’ve had this year.

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

Thanks,
Stan Ostrum

Greenbelt Guardian Work Day Sept.30

Dear Greenbelt Guardians,

We’re really late sending out a notice again, but we’re planning a workday in a little under 2 weeks and as usual, need all the help that we can round up!

We’ll be working on Saturday September 30th from 9:00 – 12:00 at the Gus Fruh access. It’s National Public Lands Day and along with our partners from Parks and Rec, we’ll be doing some trail repairs and runoff management, building some rock steps, removing invasives, trimming and weeding, and picking up trash in the area.

Please to let us know if you are available to volunteer that day. For the first time in several years we’re doing our own recruiting and registration, so you don’t have to log into a website to let us know you’re coming!

Hi Neighbors,

A small group of Greenbelt Guardians will be working at Homedale tomorrow morning (Sunday), and we could really use a few more volunteers with strong backs to help us carry 60 lb. bags of mortar mix down the access trail. We’ll be doing some rock work at the bridge leading to the flats and Campbell’s Hole, finishing up a project that we started a few weeks ago when it was too wet to use mortar.

If that sounds like your kind of fun and you can help us tomorrow from around 9 until noon, please let me know!

Thanks,
Stan Ostrum
