It's My Park Day - Saturday, March 5th

Tomorrow - Saturday, March 5th we need you to help us Mulch!


It's My Park Day!

We will gather at 9:00a at the entrance to the North Star Green Belt on Bittern Hollow.

(This is one block north of Parkfield and Bittern Hollow. The same place we have the 4th of July Parade - under the power lines and next to the water fountain). Volunteers will split up into groups to mulch, trim and spruce up our green belt.


This is an annual event sponsored by the City of Austin, Parks and Recreation department and the Park Foundation.


Just come out and have some fun for a few hours on Saturday morning. Bring the kids . . . not your pets . . . and join us to do a little spring cleaning in our greenbelt.


We have a job for everyone. We need volunteers to pass out supplies and food, as well as volunteers to mulch, paint and clean-up trash. There are small tasks for everyone and great fun and fellowship too!


GWNA will provide some of the basic supplies and light refreshments. We encourage volunteers to bring their own work gloves, shovels and hand clippers, if possible. Be sure to mark your tools with your name. We could also use a couple of volunteers with pick-up trucks to help haul mulch and supplies.


Please call Bill Glass, 836-3330, if you can help out or have any questions.


This is a fun way to meet neighbors and help our environment.  Family groups, youth groups and scouts are welcome to come earn service hours, and afterwards, enjoy some Double Dave Pizza !


Thanks for all your support !
