Butler trail to get 2,200 new trees

Friday, January 31, 2020 by Tai Moses

Around 200 volunteers will converge on Festival Beach and Holly Shores this Saturday to plant 2,200 native saplings along the Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail. The young trees will provide food and shelter for wildlife and help reduce urban temperatures and stabilize the sensitive shoreline as they grow to maturity. The volunteers hail from companies that support the Trail Foundation, including H-E-B, AMD, Stantec, RECA, the Line, Thomas J. Reinhardt Foundation, DPR Construction and Brown Advisory, NXP, HNTB, Hyatt and the Austin Runner’s Club. Saturday, Feb. 1, 9 a.m.-noon, Butler Trail, 1 Robert T Martinez Jr. St (parking lot next to Camacho Activity Center).
