City Park - finish hauling limbs, tree work(clearing mistletoe), clean out cactus garden beds, and sprinkler work and wildflower planting in the Barnes garden

Hamilton Greenbelt - removing fallen tree near the overlook, and wildflower seeding/deadheading plants/mulching soil at the new butterfly garden

Canyonlands - clean up the Bissett trail entrance and walk the canyon loop to lop up some trees that are encroaching the trail

FoP is sorry to say that Jim Dunn is moving on from the group as he and his family move out of the Lakeway area.  Jim has been an integral part of FoP for going on two decades.  He's worked on countless projects, served on the board, been the chair, and done immeasurable good for the group.  He also took on the responsibility of building and maintaining our website and sent out all membership emails for many years.  Thanks Jim for all your help and best wishes on your next chapter!

Workdays occur the second Saturday of the month from September through May.  The group meets at the Lakeway City Park pavilion on the upper level at 8am and breaks into work groups from there.  We then work until approximately noon at which point lunch is served for all the volunteers.
