Greenbelt Guardians Workday Scheduled

Greenbelt Guardians logo

Greenbelt Fans,

We are getting back to work on the greenbelt! We have a lot of activities planned for this upcoming work day at Homedale Trail. There will also be several other activities up and down the greenbelt trail to celebrate this National Public Lands Day.

We will be making small repairs and improvements from the entry to the kiosk, and also repairing some of the trail edging along the switchback trail. As always, we will be working on invasives management – we will have a crew of Texas Corps members to work alongside us, doing the sawing and herbicide treatment – and we will need plenty of folks to organize the slash to be hauled off of the site. We have a special project to mortar in some stone sidewalls on both sides of the bridge crossing. And we need to remove some graffiti on the rock flats.

We’re looking forward to a very productive work day. We will start gathering at the entry to Homedale Trail, 2010 Homedale Drive, at 8:45, for sign-in and some fortifying breakfast tacos. Volunteers will choose their preferred activity and gather with their team leader for instructions. We provide all of the needed work tools. Bring your favorite work gloves, and please wear long pants and long sleeves – there is a healthy population of poison ivy.

Please RSVP to this email AND
sign up on the Austin Parks Foundation website at
Looking forward to having some productive fun on the trail !
