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!

Hi neighbors,

Sorry for the short notice, but the Greenbelt Guardians will be working tomorrow morning (Saturday March 11) from 9:00 until noon at the Homedale access behind the school and we could use a few more volunteers. 

We got rained out last weekend and decided to reschedule, but lost quite a few folks in the process.  So if you’re available tomorrow morning, we would love to have you join us.  Please go here for all of the details and to register.  It helps if you can sign up online in advance, but if you just show up in the morning we will put you to work!

Greenbelt Guardians Workday March 4

As part of the Austin Parks Foundation’s 15th annual Spring It’s My Park Day event, we will be working at the Homedale Access, located behind Barton Hills Elementary School, on Saturday March 4th from 9:00 to Noon.

Volunteers will be weeding and repairing portions of the stone edging on the entry trail, repairing erosion damage on a small section of the entry trail, replacing a section of wood railing, camouflaging some graffiti, and continuing the work of constructing stone underpinning walls to support the wood crossover bridge along the trail. We will also be doing some terracing and stepping stone work near the trail approach to the large stone flats adjacent to Barton creek. And there is always plenty of trash to pick up after the crowds that assemble to enjoy the flowing creek water.

If you’re available to work with us on that day, please go to the APF GetPulse website and register online for our project here.

There will be tasks appropriate for a range of ages and skill sets. We provide team leaders and tools needed for all of the tasks. Volunteers are advised to bring a water bottle and wear long pants and long sleeves and closed-toe shoes.

We’re looking forward to a good workday on March 4th and hoping that you can join us!

Glee and Stan
