River Watchers restore local ecotype Loblolly Pines to Bastrop State Park at Volunteer Day

By December 1, 2012 No Comments

December 1, 2012:  14 River Watchers, our two Interns from St. Edwards University and one volunteer, planted local ecotype Loblolly Pines in Bastrop State Park as part of a Volunteer Day – the first in a series of these volunteers days to help restore some of the trees that burned down in the catastrophic Labor Day Fires of 2011.  See a photo of one of the River Watchers planting a tree and read the story on the Austin American Statesman’s website.  The young women of River Watch camped and slept over at the River Watch EcoHouse at Hornsby Bend the night before so that we could get to the Park in time for the 8:00am volunteer orientation, safety talk and planting instructions.
