Bartholomew Appreciation Day – Saturday, March 3

By March 1, 2012No Comments

Show your appreciation for Bartholomew Park by learning about urban forest ecology, how it is represented in the park and how it impacts the creek.  The skills you learn will be put to use in the park AND are simple steps you can apply at home.

TreeFolks, Austin Parks Foundation, Parks and Recreation Department Forestry Division, and the Watershed Protection Department are teaming up with Windsor Park Neighborhood Association and the Friends of Bartholomew Park to pilot a public-private partnership called the Future Forest Project.

The Project will educate and engage neighborhood volunteers teaching tree care and closely related topics so they learn simple tree care practices, how these actions can affect change, and how they can contribute to increasing one of our most valuable the level of care for trees.

We will recruit volunteers from this workday to provide follow up tree maintenance and monitoring that will increase tree canopy – our Future Forest!

We look forward to seeing you there!

This is a It’s My Park Day event.
