Austin, TX – TreeFolks is looking for volunteers to help plant seedlings along the Blanco River in Hays County this Saturday from 1:00 – 4:00 PM. This event is part of a 4-year program to help reforest the banks of the Blanco River damaged during the Memorial Day Weekend Floods of 2015. The new seedlings will help to reduce erosion, clean the water, and slow future flooding.
Because this project takes place on private properties, addresses for events will not be published. Instead, volunteers will receive an e-mail with location details prior to the event.
To volunteer for the Saturday, December 13 event, please register on the TreeFolks volunteer webpage. Thank you.
