Shoal Creek Trail Stewards Training
Sat, April 29, 2017, 9:30 AM – 10:00 AM CDT
Pemberton Heights families (and other neighborhoods!) are our eyes and ears on the Shoal Creek Trail! Join Pemberton Heights Neighborhood Association and Shoal Creek Conservancy and be a part of a pilot project to help keep Shoal Creek safe, clean and beautiful. Becoming a Trail Steward is also a great opportunity for students and scouts to learn the rewards of community service while recreating in the outdoors! On request, Shoal Creek Conservancy will provide proof of participation to document their service.
The short training will include a brief conversation about the goals of this pilot project, what to look for on the trail and how to report different issues you see. Before the training, if you have a chance please take a quick look at the Trail Steward Report form we will review together. Being a Steward is an informal and voluntary effort and implies no obligation. Only if you see an issue (trash, pollution, safety, etc) while on or around the Trail is it necessary to make a report, or in some cases a call. A Shoal Creek Conservncy t-shirt and trash picker are provided for those that sign up!
After the Stewards Training, we will be hosting a Tree Walk (10:00 am to 12:00 pm) with TreeFolks, and we would love for you to come. The Tree Walk will be lead by Audrey Stewart, B.S. and M.A. in Ecology, Evolution and Behavior from UT Austin. Please register here as space is limited.
Look forward to seeing you there!
