Ready, Set, Plant! @ Heritage Oaks Park
February 25 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Ready, Set, Plant! is a partnership between the City of Austin Forestry Division, City of Austin Watershed Protection, Keep Austin Beautiful and TreeFolks, Inc. to plant small saplings that will not require irrigation. These saplings will help to restore native tree and shrub diversity and reduce water runoff and improve water quality in Austin’s creeks.
You should wear long pants and closed toe shoes as we will be working in areas with tall vegetation along the creek. Poison ivy is frequently present in these areas, so please dress accordingly! Bring a water bottle, hat and sunscreen and dress appropriately for the weather. Water, coffee, light refreshments, gloves and tools will be provided.
Planting Leaders are needed to lead volunteer planting crews at planting events. Leaders meet half an hour early to help organize tools and get special instructions, then provide direct supervision of planting volunteers. If you would like to sign up to be a leader, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
