It’s My Park Day – Spring is Saturday, March 4th
Our 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.
Volunteer registration opens in February. Help us maintain and improve your local park by volunteering for one of our It’s My Park Day projects.
