Fall 2018 It’s My Park Day!

Posted on October 23, 2018 by denman82

Help us make Brentwood Park look lovely for the Fall and ready for a new season of enjoyment! Registration is live at https://givepul.se/b4txt

Projects will include

* Tree mulching and root collar clearing. (We will have two loads of mulch!)

* Volleyball Court cleanup and border maintenance (weather dependent)

* Flower bed weeding, cleanup, mulching and tending the plantings

Genuine Joe will be providing coffee, and Eldorado Cafe will be providing breakfast tacos. Please bring your own mug for coffee.

Please bring your own work gloves and dress appropriately for the work: closed-toe shoes, long sleeves and pants recommended. Hats, sunscreen and your own water bottle are also strongly encouraged.

We are also asking volunteers to PLEASE bring tools because we can’t get enough tools from APF for all our volunteers. PLEASE MARK YOUR TOOLS WITH YOUR NAME AND PHONE NUMBER so we can return them from you in the event you are separated from them.

Check-in will begin at approximately 8:30 a.m. at the Pavilion near Arroyo Seco.

PLEASE NOTE: Younger children are welcome to accompany their parents but projects are more suitable for kids 12 and older.

Roots and Wings Festival: Brentwood park

Posted on September 14, 2018 by denman82

Please mark your calendars for Roots and Wings Festival: Brentwood Park on Saturday, October 27, 9am-12pm.

Join us on Halloween weekend to explore the park, enjoy nature based crafts, learn about our new and old trees, and celebrate in your best nature-themed costume.

We will be releasing more details soon. In the meantime, please contact us at friendsofbrentwoodpark@gmail.com if you would like to help with an activity or have folding tables and chairs to loan for the event.

The Roots & Wings Festival is a combined community-wide appreciation party for Arbor Day and Monarch Appreciation Day happening at the Zilker Botanical Gardens and four neighborhood parks around the city. The event is sponsored by Austin Nature in the City, Austin Parks Foundation, and Austin Parks and Recreation.

We look forward to seeing you there!
