The July edition of the Barton Hills Neighborhood Association newsletter is now available online and it’s printed counterpart will be delivered to residents soon.

Check it out to see the agenda for our upcoming General Meeting on July 26, learn about planned mixed-use developments planned on South Lamar near the entrance to Barton Hills, and read about the latest efforts of our Neighborhood Watch and Greenbelt Guardians. The online edition also features color photos from the recent Independence Day Parade and a beautiful photo essay by Editor Jennifer Ellen Cook about her encounter with a baby screech owl.

 

Greenbelt fans,

Below is an invitation to a special summer work day on Barton Creek trail, sponsored and organized by the Austin Parks Foundation. The goal is to gather stone and rubble rock and stockpile it near the base of a very large and valuable Cedar Elm tree, where storm waters have eroded the banks. When the water is up, this area provides a nice wide swimming hole. The stones will be gathered from the creek bed.

I hope some of you will be inspired to participate – you will gain “highest virtue” points for participation!

Stay cool,

Glee

Subject: Special Barton Creek Greenbelt Workday – Sat, July 16th 9 am to noon.

Please join us for our next Barton Creek Greenbelt Volunteer Day – Saturday, July 16th 9 am to noon. Our Barton Creek Trail Corps is beginning work on rebuilding a section of stream bank just east of the Mopac bridges and they need our help to gather and haul both gravel and good sized rocks for fill material behind the big rocks that they’ll be putting into place. We’ll use buckets and rock cradles to do our work and we’ll supply jugs of water, gloves and tools.

We’ll meet at the Twin Falls/Gaines Creek Access Trail, just off South Mopac Expressway frontage road.

If heading south on Mopac, exit for Loop 360 North. You’ll come to the intersection and traffic signal at Loop 360. Continue straight across onthe frontage road (don’t get onto Mopac Southbound) and you’ll see a row of cars parked on the shoulder. Park and walk to the trailhead, which is where the guardrail begins.

If heading north on Mopac, exit for Loop 360 North. Stay in the left hand lane. You’ll come to the intersection and traffic signal at Loop 360. Turn left onto Loop 360 and get into the left turn lane, turning left at the traffic signal onto the southbound frontage road (don’t get onto Mopac Southbound) and you’ll see a row of cars parked on the shoulder. Park and walk to the trailhead, which is where the guardrail begins.

Date: Saturday, July 16, 2011
Time: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
