The Pease Park Conservancy is seeking volunteers to participate in the Austin Parks Foundation’s annual citywide “It’s My Park Day” event. Volunteers will spread mulch, weed flowerbeds, clear trash, and perform other tasks to maintain the natural environment of historic Pease Park. Persons interested in volunteering at Pease Park should register through the Austin Park’s Foundation registration page.
APF’s “It’s My Park Day” event takes place on the first Saturday in March each year. At last year’s event, over 3,000 volunteers provided more than 10,000 hours of labor to improve Austin’s parks and greenbelts.
“We had a great turnout at Pease Park last year and we hope to repeat that success this year,” said Andy Gill, the Conservancy’s executive director. “The ‘It’s My Park Day’ event is a great way for the people of Austin to express their appreciation for our wonderful park.”
The Conservancy will provide “It’s My Park Day” t-shirts to registered volunteers and refreshments to all volunteers who participate in this event at Pease Park.
