Greetings Friends of Balcones Park!
It's My Park Day is just around the corner, but I want to alert you to the latest challenges for our park.
Starting 9/30/19 the city is about to make some repairs of the worst defects in the newly constructed trail in the park, but is refusing to address the continuing migration of gravel, improper slope stabilization and spreading of cracks in the pavement, Please see the Milwood NA website for more information and how to help -
Greetings Friends of Balcones Park! I just wanted to drop a note that we need volunteers for It's My Park Day on March 2, 2019. Please consider coming out to help mulch trees, maintain trails and clean up the park. We could also use leaders in the following areas
-Mulch monitors - show folks how to get mulch to the trees without trampling wildflowers, how to mulch properly, etc.
-trash pickup guides - take folks to more remote areas of the park and greenbelt for trash pickup
-trail debris removal - guide volunteers to the work sites.
If you are interested in leading a team, even if you can't stay for the entire event, please let me know.

Thanks to those of you have already signed up - and to all who support the park. Hope to see you there!
Sincerely, Erik Harris
