    Open Volunteer Opportunity: Copperfield Nature Trail cleanup!

    Great weather for a January trash pick up along the trail. Happy and productive volunteers found trash among the winter foliage along the trail all the way to Shropshire and fished trash out of the Blakeney pond.
    Good wildlife viewing including a great blue heron. Finished on time.

    IMPD Fall 2019: Friday Tool and Supply Bag Pickup

    volunteers at the tool shed did a great job fitting everything in my truck and were super nice and quick. Very organized. Kathleen and Barry answered my questions and it is always nice to see APF celebrities when picking up tools. :-)

    solo weeding event today around the sky flower by the cistern bed. Bermuda grass making it thru the cardboard and mulch but over time if we keep up the onslaught of pulling, we'll beat it. Frog fruit plant and horse herb are trying to help by becoming ground cover, which is a really good thing. Moist ground after recent rain made for easier pulling of weeds.

    Keep Austin Beautiful Day

    Despite the time change and many volunteers cancelling or not showing up due to crazy rainy and windy weather, we still have a fantastic work day because of the enthusiastic volunteers that did show up and I think we all had fun and hopefully none got poison ivy.
