Tree TLC at Akins High School
April 8, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Please come and join us in giving the trees at Akins High School some much needed Tender Loving Care. These are trees that our volunteers helped to plant back in December 2015. We’ll be clearing debris and weeds from around the base of the trees and then spreading mulch to protect their roots from foot traffic and keep them nice and cool during our summer months. We will discuss the importance of urban forest stewardship and how correctly mulching a tree will help it survive harsh summer conditions.
Bring a water bottle and come prepared to do physical labor: long pants, gloves, closed toe shoes and sun protection. Mulch is dusty, so you may want sunglasses and a hat as well. All ages are welcome. Water, light refreshments, gloves, and tools will be provided.
This event is being hosted as part of Keep Austin Beautiful’s Clean Sweep.
