Thanks to the over 130 volunteers at Zilker this week

Over 130 volunteers came out on Thu, Fri and Sat mornings to help us shovel, haul and spread mulch under another 100 or so trees.   Meantime, arborists continue to perform root zone invigorations on 90 trees, they nearly halfway done with the work and given our recent rains (including a rain shower early this afternoon), we’re hoping that the trees will respond whether they have mulched or invigorated.

An example of a well mulched tree by our volunteers

Our thanks to volunteers from Dell, UT, St. Edwards University, Crockett High School and some of great individual volunteers.  Thanks too to our amazing City Parks Forestry staff who were hauling in mulch, helping us load wheelbarrows and carts and get hundreds of cubic yards spread under some amazing trees.  Thanks to the recent rains, the park is looking much greeener too.

Ok, now onto National Public Lands Day on Sat, Sept 25th at Barton Creek Greenbelt![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
