Greenbelt Fans,

We hope you will help us celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Greenbelt Guardians by joining us at our upcoming work day on It’s My Park Day, Saturday, March 2, from 9 am to 1 pm!  We will be hosting volunteers at both the Homedale Trail (2010 Homedale Drive) and the Gus Fruh Trail (2642 Barton Hills Drive).

At both sites we will continue our work on invasive plant removal, minor trail repairs, and clean-up/trash removal. At Gus Fruh, work will also continue on the construction of  a retaining wall and steps by the swimming hole area.

We’re looking forward to getting back to the trail and doing our part to give back to this incredible resource right in the midst of our city. We hope you will join us.

Please RSVP directly by email if you plan to attend – we want to make sure we have plenty of Maria’s famous breakfast tacos to help get us started!

Also, please go to the website of the Austin Parks Foundation ( to sign in there, so they will know how many tee shirts of what sizes to send to our work sites. Everyone who signs up and participates will get a commemorative tee shirt designed especially for this work day.

We are looking forward to seeing both lots of familiar faces and new comers – we will provide the tools, tasks, and team leaders so we can all have a productive day giving back to our greenbelt.
