Trail maintenance in the West Bouldin Creek          Greenbelt

Neighbors,                                                                                                                                       We will do trail maintenance in the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt, 1200 S 6th Street,  next Saturday April 14 from 9 am to  noon. The ground is still soft from the recent rains and this is a great time to pull out the encroaching ragweed.

Keep Austin Beautiful and the Austin Parks Foundation are providing tools and gloves – all we need now is about 30 people to get this done.                                                                                                                                Please join us, even if only for an hour; kids and friends welcome. The greenbelt is gorgeous at this time of the year and the weather promises to be warmer.                                                                                                         Thanks, Ingrid Weigand                                                                                                   BCNA Parks Committee                                                                                                512-663-4632

27th Annual BCNA Creek Cleaning 2018-03-03

“Big Fun in the greenbelt on Saturday – thanks to Ingrid with her mighty network of connections and organizational abilities, and all the folks who pitched in!”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Ronnie D                                                                                                                            BCNA Parks Committee

“More than  80 neighbors and community volunteers met at the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt for the 27th Annual BCNA Creek Cleaning Party yesterday morning. Together we removed over 120 bags of trash, as well as tents, clothing, carpet remnants, cardboard and small electronics. In addition, the abundance of nandina, a fast-spreading non-native bush, was reduced by at least half. Hint – there is a lot more to take out…

The weather held up and everyone had a very good time. For quite a few participants, this was the first time they had spent in our wonderful greenbelt..

We finished off the morning with a delicious lunch from Lucy’s on South Congress: fried chicken, pickles, mashed potatoes, cole slaw. We had neglected to bring eating utensils, but found out that wooden coffee stirs make great chopsticks that worked just fine.…

Thank you every one who helped, especially the team leaders!

Sincerely,

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

West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt Trail Opening Celebration

From Ingrid Weigand with the BCNA Parks Department:
We had a wonderful Trail Opening Celebration in the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt last Saturday. Attendees included Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo, representatives from the Austin Parks and Recreation Department and Austin Watershed Protection as well as the Austin Parks Foundation and Bouldin and Zilker neighbors.
You can view photos using link below.
The trails will only stay open if they are used consistently, so please go explore! While you are out there, feel free to pull out ragweed at the edge of the paths.
Thanks to everyone who helped get the trails ready and those who attended.
Ours is truly a great neighborhood.
