It’s My Park Day – Spring is Saturday, March 4th

GroupPhotoWootenPark_smOur biggest city-wide volunteer event, It’s My Park Day, has expanded to a Spring and Fall event! Each year, thousands of volunteers work to improve parks and greenbelts throughout the city, and this year we’ll be doing it twice.

In 2015, we had nearly 100 projects city-wide, 3,000 volunteers, and 10,000 hours of volunteer labor. That’s equivalent to 5 park maintenance employees working full-time for a whole year! All told, including labor, this one day represented an investment of over a quarter of a million dollars for Austin’s parks.

Project registration for It’s My Park Day is now closed, and volunteer registration opens soon!

By pitching in to help with spring maintenance activities such as spreading mulch, planting trees, clearing trails, and painting benches, It’s My Park Day participants play a significant role in the management and upkeep of our parks. Many of our volunteers become committed stewards of our public spaces by adopting their park and participating in fundraising and park improvement projects throughout the year.
