Austin Parks Foundation celebrates Earth Day
Monday, April 16, 2018 by Katy McElroy
Earth Day is on April 22, but the Austin Parks Foundation is dedicating the whole month to promoting giveback events and volunteerism in support of Austin parks. For those who have a little extra time to donate, the foundation has a complete list of volunteer opportunities on its GivePulse page. Giveback events begin April 19, when the Austin Parks Foundation and the Trail Foundation will receive 5 percent of all sales at all Austin Whole Foods locations. Then, on April 20, the Austin Parks Foundation is part of the Give 5 day, where a group of local businesses have pledged 5 percent of their profits to nine local nonprofits. Finally on Earth Day, April 22, at 11 a.m., yoga instructor Lizzie Aguirre will be leading a class at Native Hostel “filled with intention, laughter, yoga and live music,” followed by “mindful cocktails from Juice Society and a nourishing brunch.” This event is free, but those who donate are guaranteed admission, which is limited. Reserve here.
