March 7, 2015 – It’s My Park Day – Balcones Park

Balcones Park/Greenbelt Cleanup 9AM-2PM

3 projects planned, we have a good number of folks signed up via the Parks Foundation, but all are welcome to pitch in to give the park and greenbelt some TLC!

1) General Park Cleanup in Balcones Park

2) Greenbelt Cleanup – Cleanup the area along the new shared use trail that will (eventually) connect to Walnut Creek Park.  Please bring a wheelbarrow if you have one.  Long-handles garden rakes or hoes are also good for snagging bags from the creek.

3) Restore Trail connection between new shared use trail and single track trail near Mopac.  This will involve moving branches from the creek and moving rocks to make a ford crossing.

*Graffiti painting was originally planned, but will be done later to not interfere with the other projects.

**time and labor permitting, there is mulch leftover from a recent tree mulching project to be placed around trees in the park

We will meet at the picnic tables by the park entrance, distribute gloves, trash bags and organize groups for the various projects.  If you come later, don’t worry, we will have someone there with maps to get you to a project area.  See you at the park!
