Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Help out with all kinds of habitat restoration activities on this special section of the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve alongside biologist Jim O'Donnell and a great team of volunteers every Monday, Tuesday, and Sunday from 10am-noon. Whether it's building soil, propagating native plants, or building rain catchment devices, you're bound to learn something new and contribute to the wildlands in the process. See upcoming volunteer events and sign up to volunteer at https://www.austintexas.gov/wildlandevents.
Tasks may include planting and caring for native plants, trail building, removing invasive species, building erosion controls, clearing debris along a creek, and/or seed collecting/planting. Please dress for the weather and bring a refillable water bottle.
Located near RR360 and FM2244. Directions will be sent when you register at austintexas.gov/wildlandevents.
