October Workday Events
Oct 20, 2013|
I just finished hiking the Canyonlands and want to pass along what a great job I think the Friends of the Parks are doing. I hadnít been in there for a while and really enjoyed my visit Ė without getting lost once, thanks to the new trail signs. With all the streams running and the pond full, itís the best time to be in there.
Please pass this along to the FOP gangÖ..and tell them Iíll be back in the fold as soon as we get settled over in Flintrock Falls.

We had about 25 volunteers meet at the upper parking lot at 8AM for volunteer opportunities.
We just finished a very productive Workday! We had more volunteers than expected show up for the workday. We had to stay very flexible to keep everyone productive. Many times we had to intermingle work crews on different tasks. In the end we had a very productive workday. We had a delicious lunch served by Judy Hazen and her crew. We also qualified two new members to operate the mini-bodcat; Bill Feas and George Ferrie. Thanks for everyone's efforts.

Bill Freas headed up a large group that spread and raked out the crushed granite in the Wild Flower Meadow for future spreading of Bluebonnet seeds. The group later split up into three smaller groups to clean-up (rake, weed-eat, trim) the three primitive trails (Challenge, Tree Trust and Garden). The hard working and sweating volunteers were: Bob Schooler, Bob Knaus, Linda & Todd Buikema, Tom Smith, Mireille Kimse, Marty and Cindy Berdan and David Cross.

City Park Tree Removal - Dave Cross and Lamar Bolling cut down dead cedar trees between the lower parking lot and the Dog Park, and south of the Dog Park removed cedar trees/saplings from around two oak trees and removed some cedar stumps from trail path. Mike Taylor helped remove a dead oak tree from the edge of the Wildflower Meadow.

Jim Dunn and Tony Mataya trimmed and cleared limbs along HGBII trail from the Palos Verdes trail head to the loop at the end of the crushed granite. Many piles of limbs were placed along the trail for later pickup by Lakeway Park employees. An area of erosion was noted and will be worked on the next workday.

Friends of the Parks is a group of citizens who enjoy the rewards of volunteer service in the parks and greenbelts areas of Lakeway. Monthly Saturday morning work sessions provide opportunities for all levels of service, whether it is tree maintenance, general cleanup or tending memorial gardens at City Park. A few of the hardier members help build and maintain hiking/biking trails in the Hamilton Greenbelts and the Canyonlands Natural Area. Still others provide food for our workday picnics. For information contact Bernie Reding 261-5633 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Friends of the Parks sponsors one annual community event which is the annual Wilderness Run/Walk event on the Hamilton Greenbelt trails on the third Saturday of April. The goal of this event is to encourage citizens to get out and enjoy the beauty of the greenbelts and parks of the City of Lakeway.
