National Public Lands Day Event at Lake Georgetown
Saturday, September 28, 2013 - 08:30 to Noon
Join REI and the Austin Ridge Riders for a great opportunity to give the Lake Georgetown trail some love. National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands including parks, trails, and green spaces. NPLD began nationally in 1994 with three sites and 700 volunteers. It proved to be a huge success and became a yearly tradition, typically held on the last Saturday in September. This project will have volunteers removing encroaching limbs, cleaning up the existing trail tread, and working on drainage improvements to slow down/eliminate erosion issues.
