The sixth annual Project Build A Park, presented by Austin Community College Office of Student Life together with the Austin Parks Foundation was a tremendous success!
We had the help of over 275 volunteers on Sat, Nov 17! Amazing!
We could not have done this without the incredible help and support from the following:
-from SEATAG (Southeast Austin Trails & Greenways) volunteers, especially Malcolm, Jim, Gale and Judy
– The Austin Community College Student Life Team led by Stacy.
– The Central Texas Trail Tamers team leaders: Derly, Patrick, Charles, Kevin, Jerry and Richard, who partnered with us to lead teams of volunteers to perform all of the tasks.
– lots of tools from the Austin Parks Foundation.
We worked from from 9 am to 12 noon to spread over 28 truckloads of road base on nearly 1/2 mile of trail, tremendous amount of trash and construction debris collected and tossed and a huge mountain of Bamboo cut back, piled and an amazing collection of cans and bottles gathered.
Photos from the top to bottom show road base being spread, bamboo being stacked high and part of our can collection.
Thanks so much to ACC for providing a band and lunch for volunteers for this sixth annual Project Build A Park – it went great!
