It’s My Park Day returns
Monday, May 17, 2021 by Tai Moses
Austin Parks Foundation’s It’s My Park Day is returning this summer as a weeklong hybrid event from June 5-13, giving Austinites the chance to “engage with, learn about and give back to local parks from the comfort of their homes or complete individual, outdoor park cleanups and activities in their neighborhoods.” There are many virtual events planned for the week and a limited number of in-person projects offered on Saturday, June 12, at nearly 30 parks across the city. Volunteers can weed at Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, pick up trash at Walnut Creek Greenbelt or mulch at Zilker Botanical Garden, among other opportunities. Find a full list of projects and a FAQ about the event on the Austin Parks Foundation website.
