Colony Park Day of Service
Saturday, November 1
9 am-12 pm

  • 100 Trees to Plant
  • Community Garden Dig
  • Free Food and Fun!

Join us at the Turner-Roberts Recreation Center (7201 Colony Loop Drive) for an exciting day of service at Colony Park! Tree-planting, gardening and other fun outdoor activities will occur at the future location of the Colony Park Master Plan. Sign up to volunteer here!

Through the generosity of the City of Austin, 100 trees have been donated for this celebration. In addition, the day will also be dedicated to working on the community garden at Overton Elementary. There is no need to be a nature expert to help out — we will have a role for anyone big or small! Families will enjoy free food, entertainment, and fun. Take a look at the event flyer (en Español) for more information!

Thank you to our sponsors!
