This Friday, you can engage in some good old-fashioned Philanthropic Shopping to support the Give 5% campaign. Join us at the Kendra Gives Back Party (6-8pm) at Kendra Scott on 3800 North Lamar, and help support Austin’s environmental nonprofits!
On the eve of Mother Earth Day, our next volunteer cleaning event at Barton Springs will be on Thursday, April 21 (9am to 1pm). Join us and volunteers from AMD to help clean the Springs! To sign up for a shift, go to our registration page, https://austinparks.givepulse.com/event/16991-FBSP-Volunteer-Cleaning-at-Barton-Springs-Pool-Thurs.-April-21-2016.
Please Help Amplify Friends of Barton Springs Pool!
Your gift to Amplify Friends of Barton Springs Pool will help restore, Barton Springs Pool to its rightful glory. With your support, we can improve and maintain Barton Springs Pool through our work to organize volunteer pool cleanings, advocate on behalf of the pool, educate the public about water quality and the pool conditions, throw fun parties, and honor the pool’s sensitive environment and work to preserve and protect it so that we, and generations long after ours, can continue to enjoy the cool, clean spring waters.
Please make or schedule a supporting donation here at our Amplify Austin page. With a small $10 or $20 donation from each Friend, we can do some great things for Barton Springs!!!!
We have three wonderful suggestions for our wonderful Friends of Barton Springs Pool for Screening, Supporting and Cleaning Barton Springs!
First, check out Living Springs’ debut screening of the “A Reflecting Pool” tomorrow (March 3 at 7 pm) at UT’s Belo Center for New Media Moody Auditorium. The film recounts the Springs’ experience from 1912 to 1962, including the little known race history of Barton Springs. The screening will also include extra screenings of “Mr. Habitat” and “Cleaning Day” which features the Barton Springs lifeguards and staff and community volunteers from the Friends of Barton Springs Pool. Addition screening event details are posted at https://www.facebook.com/events/635391156593046/.
Second, help Amplify Friends of Barton Springs Pool by making or scheduling a supporting donation at our Amplify Austin page, https://amplifyatx.ilivehereigivehere.org/FriendsOfBartonSpringsPool/overview. With a small $10 or $20 donation from each Friend, you can help restore, improve and maintain the pool through organizing, advocacy, volunteer work, education and fun.
Lastly, you can still grab a cleaning shift at our March 5 “It’s My Park Day” Spring Cleaning at Barton Springs.
