Project 2012 was a huge success with 2,049 volunteers working on 110 projects at 23 sites in the Dove Springs and Onion Creek Plantation communities. Not only did University of Texas at Austin students and alumni participate, but approximately 200 students from St. Edwards University joined in the fun.

The Omega Delta Phi Fraternity has participated in The Project every year since 1999. More than 20 members served as team leaders this year.

An estimated 6,000 tons of brush were removed, fences were painted and repaired, and gardens and flowerbeds planted. More stats to follow soon!
