Earth Day with Austin Parks Foundation

Earth Day is April 22nd, 2019 and APF is planning great things! From volunteer opportunities to park givebacks, there's  plenty of ways to show Mother Earth you care this Earth Day! Here's everything that we have going on around Austin:


Join us for two special open work days to get out in the parks, get a sweat going, and make our parks better for every Austinite!

4/20 Open Work Day at Wooldridge Square Park
Join us to show the trees at Wooldridge Square Park some love and care!

4/20 Earth Day at Davis White
This special Earth Day  project will feature kids' activities with Little Hummingbird Society! Volunteers of all ages are welcome.

4/27 Open Volunteer Opportunity: Paint Bartholomew's Learning Trail
We need help painting the Learning Trail at one of Austin's most beloved parks!


Give Back

Austin Parks Foundation is fortunate to work with some of Austin's best brands. This year we are working on a few givebacks that will allow you to support the parks just by visiting your favorite stores and businesses. Stay tuned as givebacks are finalized!

4/22 - Earth Day Charity Ride with SoulCycle

There’s nothing more SOULful than sweating it out for Austin's parks, trails, and green spaces! We've partnered with SoulCycle's Charity Ride Program, a 45-minute signature SoulCycle class where each individual bike is sold to fundraise for the partnering cause.
