Workday Report: Saturday Feb 25th at Homedale
We held our spring workday on Saturday, Feb 25th, at the Homedale entrance of the Barton Creek Greenbelt. 23 volunteers put in a total of 73 hours of labor. We removed a TON of nandina near Campbell’s Hole, cleaned the dead stuff out of the planters along Barton Hills Drive, and cleaned up an abandoned homeless camp near Scarlett View. We had good weather, great volunteers, and we got a lot done.

Spring workday: Saturday February 25, 2003 at Homedale
Our spring workday is scheduled for Saturday February 25th, 2023 from 9:00 until 12:00 at the Homedale entrance. Once again, we're working a week before the Austin Parks Foundation's spring It's My Park Day event on March 4th in order to do invasives removal before the March 01 deadline that marks the start of golden-cheeked warbler nesting season. (We aren't allowed to remove invasives on the greenbelt between March 01 and September 01.)
Our focus will be on removing invasive plants, primarily ligustrum and nandina. We'll be working in the same area that we worked last November - along the main greenbelt trail across the creek and downstream by Campbell's Hole. We'll also pick up any trash in the area. There will be tasks for all ages and abilities. Breakfast tacos will be provided, courtesy of the Barton Hills Neighborhood Association.
Fall workday: Saturday November 05, 2022 at Homedale
Saturday November 5th is the Austin Park Foundation’s fall It’s My Park Day (IMPD), and the Greenbelt Guardians will be working at the Barton Creek Greenbelt Homedale access from 9:00 until noon. We’ll be doing maintenance on the entry trail, removing invasive plants, picking up trash, and removing any graffiti in the area. Please come out and help us if you can!
