It’s My Park Day has something for everyone

Thursday, February 27, 2020 by Tai Moses

Austin Parks Foundation’s biggest event of the year, It’s My Park Day, or Día de Mi Parque, is right around the corner on Saturday, March 7. If you haven’t registered to volunteer, there’s still time: Organizers are adding new projects every day to this citywide bonanza of park improvement projects. You can help restore native plant habitat or create a pollinator garden, mulch heritage trees, pass out tools and supplies, plant young trees, weed flower beds, construct benches, pick up litter, paint fencing, remove invasive plants – and that’s just a small sampling of the hundreds of projects that need volunteers, located in just about every community that has a park or a greenbelt. Peruse the listings on the volunteer registration page and sign up for the project that fits your interests and abilities. One thing you can be sure of – there’s something for everyone.
