Yup, it’s cold outside, but we are due for a warming trend this weekend and we have two projects for you consider:
1) Pease Park / Shoal Creek Greenbelt – Taking it the Street (as in Lamar Blvd.)
9:30 am to 5 pm, help is needed for as much time as you can give – anywhere from an hour to all day. Pizza will be available at 1 pm for all volunteers. We’ll meet just north of the volleyball courts on the west side of Lamar Blvd on Shoal Creek Greenbelt/Pease Park. We have a mountain of mulch and dillo dirt to shovel, haul and spread and lots of wildflower seeds to sprinkle into the ground.
2) Tree Planting at Houston Elementary School
The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department’s Urban Forestry Program is in need of some helping hands this Saturday, Feb 5. The Forestry Program has 125 trees that need to be planted at Houston Elementary School Park and volunteers are in short supply. No experience necessary. Just bring some gloves if you have them and some clothes you don’t mind getting dirty — as well as a good attitude — and we will take it from there. The planting will begin at 9:00 AM and continue until all the trees are planted, probably around noon. The park address is 5409 Ponciana Dr, off of Stassney Ln. Help us green up your park and make Austin a little bit shadier!
