27th Annual BCNA Creek Cleaning 2018-03-03

Neighbors,
Due to the recent sewage spill in East Bouldin Creek, we are changing the emphasis of this year’s Annual Creek Cleaning. There is no guarantee East Bouldin Creek will be safe for volunteers (especially children) by March 3rd, so we will work exclusively in the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt. The Austin Parks Foundation also recommended against mulching the trails (lack of resources to make that happen) so if we have enough volunteers, we’ll work on widening them again.  Mainly, though, we’ll pick up trash.

Here is the updated information:
27th Annual BCNA Creek Cleaning
Saturday, March 3
New meeting place: 1200 South 6th Street, entrance to the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt
Meeting time: 8:30 am

Please wear sturdy boots, long pants, long-sleeved shirts to guard against exposure to poison ivy. Gloves, tools and trash bags will be provide courtesy of the Austin Parks Foundation and Keep Austin Beautiful.

You can still register to participate on the Austin Parks Foundation’s site at https://austinparks.givepulse.com/event/68954-Bouldin-Creek-27th-Annual-Creek-Cleaning-Party
This will give you a t-shirt!

If you plan to just show up on March 3rd, please let me know ahead of time so I can adjust our count for tools, coffee and food

Thank you,

Ingrid Weigand

27th Annul Creek Cleaning on Saturday, March 3

Neighbors,
We will hold our 27th Annul Creek Cleaning on Saturday, March 3, in conjunction with the Austin Parks Foundation’s It’s My Park Day. Registration is now open at https://austinparks.givepulse.com/event/68954-Bouldin-Creek-27th-Annual-Creek-Cleaning-Party

Some logistics are still in flux while we are waiting to see how East Bouldin Creek recovers from the sewage spill and whether it will be safe to send volunteers  in for a clean-up.

If it is, we’ll meet at 8:30 am in N Dawson Park on the corner of Gibson and South 1st for coffee, then send crews into both East and West Bouldin Creek areas to collect trash. With enough volunteers, we’ll also be able to mulch trails in the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt. (Alternate plan: meet at the South 6th Street entrance to the greenbelt and work only there.)

Please wear heavy shoes, long-sleeved shirts and long pants to protect against poison ivy. We’ll provide gloves, tools and trash bags as well as coffee in the morning and refreshments at noon.
Hope to see you there,
Ingrid Weigand
BCNA Parks Committee
