Flooded Picnic Area

All our hard work was flooded out Saturday night!!  We loved the rain, we needed it so much, but what a disappointment to see it look like this less than a day later.  National Night Out will still go on.  Look for us either in the grassy area beside the picnic area or at the end of Silk Oak Drive.  Please come out and meet your neighbors!!

More Info About National Public Lands Day

A reminder and more info about Saturday, September 28, 2013.  Please come out and give us your support in the first step of cleaning up our neighborhood park.  We will be mulching trees from 8-11 am.  Please bring shovels and wheelbarrows if you can.  Not a problem if you can’t we should have enough.  Whatever time you can give will be appreciated!  Afterwards  there will be Fun For All at the appreciation party at Zilker Park and a chance to win ACL tickets!
The Appreciation Party starts at 12:45 – 3p.m.
We will hold the drawing for the ACL tickets at 2p.m. – You will need to submit your Liability Forms at the Appreciation Party (table will be designated) to be able for yourself and your volunteers to be in the running!
Last few points –
  • For the Tree Mulching projects, please make sure to watch Urban Forestry’s mulch video yourself so that you can discuss it with your volunteers.
  • Also, please use your Site Control connection to your volunteers to let them know the details for the Appreciation Party including the map for the Zilker Rock Garden, so that they are up to speed on the location and details of the event.
  • RAIN!  Let your volunteers know that in the event of pouring rain at Saturday’s start time, our rain plan has been to wait an hour and if it is still raining, then we postpone to Sunday at the same start time.
  • Finally, don’t forget to sign up on the Calendar page for a time to pick up your tools on Thursday or Friday!
