March 7 It’s Still My Park Day at Brownie Playground
Back to basics as the neighborhood team kicked off our fifth year as Adopt-A-Park sponsor for Brownie Playground. Volunteers from the Latin Economic and Business Association at UT and from AmeriCorps*NCCC helped us collect two truckloads of trash and bulky items from the park, the creek, and the drainage easement from Applegate to Rundberg.
April 11 Rundberg Clean Sweep
Neighbors and members of Ignite Texas spent a foggy morning tidying Rundberg Lane from North Lamar Boulevard to the interregional highway. We trimmed the median oaks and elms, planted prairie flowers, and collected litter, recyclables, and one golf club. Another group of volunteers worked in Little Walnut Creek at Georgian Drive. This was the neighborhood team’s fourth year of participation in Keep Austin Beautiful’s Clean Sweep.
Special thanks to Ms Muñoz’s third grade class at Barrington for creating posters to publicize the event as part of their study of pollution and recycling. Barrington consistently stands out as a strong recycler among Austin ISD elementary schools.
