Join us for the 9th annual It’s My Park Day on March 5th.
Registration is now open for Austin Parks Foundation’s ninth annual It’s My Park Day. 3,000 volunteers are expected to attend to spend a half a day at one of over 60 improvement projects in parks across Austin.
Visit www.austinparks.org to sign up to volunteer.
And what do you get? The satisfaction that you’re working with friends and neighbors. The knowledge that you are helping our parks department by planting trees, rebuilding trails, removing non-native trees and plants, cleaning up creeks and mulching trees. You’ll also get a great looking t-shirt with our slogan “love your park.”
In 2010, we had over 2,500 volunteers work at 68 park improvement projects donating 8,750 hours to our amazing parks system in a single day. We are working to top that in 2011.
So join us at Zilker Park to plant trees, at several Barton Creek Greenbelt locations to work on trail restoration projects or in many parks across Austin to spread mulch, paint play scapes, pick up trash and much more.
www.austinparks.org is the place to find out more about It’s My Park Day and to sign-up to volunteer.
