It’s My Park Day – Fall is Saturday, November 5th
Our biggest city-wide volunteer event, It’s My Park Day, has expanded to a Spring and Fall event! Each year, thousands of volunteers work to improve parks and greenbelts throughout the city, and this year we’ll be doing it twice.
In 2015, we had nearly 100 projects city-wide, 3,000 volunteers, and 10,000 hours of volunteer labor. That’s equivalent to 5 park maintenance employees working full-time for a whole year! All told, including labor, this one day represented an investment of over a quarter of a million dollars for Austin’s parks.
Important Dates for Leaders:
- Leader Meeting: October 20, 6:30-8pm at the Carver Branch Library
- Tool and supply pick up: November 3 – 4, APF Tool Warehouse
