Parks department teams up with JetBlue for volunteer day

Tuesday, March 21, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

The city’s Parks and Recreation Department is partnering with JetBlue Airlines for a day of volunteering at the Zilker Botanical Gardens. On Wednesday, March 22, JetBlue will bring together volunteers from Austin and across the country to work on the garden grounds. The partnership came about as a result of Austin’s victory in the “One Thing That’s Green Initiative,” a contest JetBlue uses to help offset its carbon footprint. The day begins at 9 a.m. at the Zilker Botanical Garden, 2220 Barton Springs Road.
