We would like to show our gratitude to all the people who took part in the Green Army 2.0 clean up event sponsored by AMD. You helped care for our community and we are greatly appreciative of your service. This morning a group of registrants took part in a clean up mission to revitalize two of Austin’s historic areas: the popular Rainey Street District and beautiful Waller Creek. We thank you for volunteering your time to the Austin community!
For those who missed the event, you still have a chance to help the local community. Today at noon, AMD will be partnering up with the LBJ Wildflower Center to preserve our natural lands. Join us in Meeting Room 1 of the ACC to help preserve tree seeds in a hands-on tranquil activity. See you there!
The Wildflower Center is seeking volunteers to help sow the seeds of Bastrop’s recovery. As part of the Bastrop County Community Reforestation Program, the Wildflower Center is growing loblolly pine trees to help replace those lost in the 2011 fire that burned over 34,000 acres of woodland in the Lost Pines area of Bastrop county. They need your help sowing 350,000 seeds of loblolly pine into containers in their expanded tree nursery. Once sown and grown, the seedlings will be used in large-scale community planting efforts in the fire-ravaged community. No special knowledge or skills are required and training will be on-the-job with our Nursery staff. Volunteer shifts are Tues-Friday 8:30am–12:30pm and Saturday and Sunday 9am–1pm in June, or until all trees are planted.
If you would like to help Bastrop, contact the Wildflower Center’s Volunteer Manager, Carrie McDonald.
