May 4, 2017 — A Spring Barton Springs Cleaning Volunteer Opportunity

Hark, the herald angels sing!
It’s time for all to clean the Springs!
So join us on the Fourth of May…
to scrub the algae scum away!


On Thursday, May 4 (9am to 3pm), volunteers can help clean Barton Springs by helping yank invasives, brush and clean the stair rails and sidewalls, pot plants (it’s not what it sounds like), aerate and weed the lawn and gardens, spread mulch, excavate rocks, shovel sediment, and move the debris to the compost area by rolling wheelbarrows outside the pool area. All this hard work helps contribute to the cleaning, well-being, and beautification of Barton Springs Pool. TacoDeli tacos and refreshments will be provided, but bring your own attitude!!!

Volunteers can choose from 3 two hour shifts, starting at 9am.  Please sign up for a shift at the SignUp link ( to help spiff up the pool.

We are truly grateful for all the support from Austin Parks Foundation which makes our cleaning days possible, including generous grant support to buy tools and cleaning equipment.  Muchas thankyous @austinparksfdn!
