As we leave the Dog Days of Summer and close out the last days of the (astronomical) summer (in the Northern Hemisphere), Barton Springs still needs your help to clean the Springs, so help us tidy our beautiful pool and surrounding grounds. You can volunteer by signing up for a 2 hour shift, starting at 10 am or 12:00 pm. Bring some friends. Food and refreshments will be supplied. A big thanks to our partner on this cleaning, Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.! For those that sign up for a 10:00 – 12:00 pm shift, head over to ABGB for a slice of pizza!

Pool cleanings take place in two-hour increments from 10-12 and 12-2. We need three to ten volunteers for each shift along with experienced volunteers to serve as shift leaders.
At the seasonal monthly pool cleanings, FBSP volunteers scrub rocks, vacuum the pool bottom, clean algae off steps and railings, skim algae off the pool surface, plant flowers and help maintain the pool grounds, paint benches and trim, and generally lend a hand to make the pool and grounds as clean and beautiful as possible.
So come roll up your sleeves, bring a friend, have a snack and enjoy the company of other Barton Springs enthusiasts. We look look forward to seeing you there!
You’re invited to a Private Pool Party at Barton Springs Pool this coming Thursday, August 6 from 10-2! Normally, the pool is closed to the public at this time, but we’ve arranged a special event for all our friends to join us for our “Clean The Pool” theme party.
Sign up for a shift by clicking this link (http://vols.pt/pYbv4U) to our VolunteerSpot signup page, and then join us at the Gala Scrubbing Event where you help Clean the Springs while the great, unwashed masses look forlornly from outside the fence, wishing they could be one of the Cool Kids invited inside to help with the pool cleaning.
Party favors include privileged access to Barton Springs, enjoyment of the cool spring waters during pushbroom cleaning of the pool bottom, a nice mid-day tan, and a sense of accomplishment in doing something nice for Barton Springs. Plus plenty of pizza for our registered volunteers.
Hope to see you on Thursday!!!!
