Greenbelt Guardians "It's My Park Day" Events, March 6, 9 AM-1 PM 

The Greenbelt Guardians will be organizing events at two Barton Creek trailheads this year: the Gus Fruh trailhead at 2642 Barton Hills Drive, and the Zilker trailhead, just west of the Barton Springs Pool parking lot, off of 2201 Barton Springs Rd.

Stan Ostrum will be heading up the work at Gus Fruh, and Glee Ingram will be leading the work at Zilker trailhead. We will be joining energy with volunteers around the city for It?s My Park Day, which is organized by the Austin Parks Foundation. Up to 60 city parks around the city will be receiving TLC.

On the Barton Creek Greenbelt, we will be focusing our energy on invasive plant removal, trail repair and maintenance, and trash clean-up. We will also have the opportunity to create a ?natural? symbolic art piece that thanks the volunteers for their work. The water is flowing and spring is in the air ? so we are looking forward to a great work day. We hope you will join us.

 Come prepared with proper outdoor work gear: long pants, long sleeves, closed-toe shoes, and your favorite pair of gloves. We will provide snacks, water, tools, team leaders, and special tee shirts.

Please RSVP to this notice via email, and ALSO on the Austin Parks Foundation website (

Neighborhood Watch Meeting Tuesday, Feb. 9, 7 PM at St. Mark's 


The second Neighborhood Watch meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 9 at St. Mark's Church. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM and should last about one hour.

We invite all Barton Hills and Zilker residents to attend. We also hope you will share this invitation with your neighbors who may not be receiving information via the listserve as we will be sharing information to help reduce criminal activity within our neighborhood and we would like all residents to attend.

The general agenda for the meeting will consist of the following topics:
  • Orientation to Neighborhood Watch; what it is and what it is not.
  • Meeting your neighbors who share a common interest and concern or the safety and well being of our neighborhood.
  • How working with adjacent neighborhoods in crime prevention programs makes us all more secure.
  • Information about techniques for observation and reporting of suspicious persons or vehicles.
  • Question and answers related to home security; things you can do yourself at low cost.
Our last Neighborhood Watch meeting was very popular with over 80 people attending. The February 9 meeting is in response to requests for additional information on crime and safety within our neighborhoods.

Come and bring a neighbor. Be part of the solution. You will be amazed at what neighbors looking out for neighbors can do.

I Hope To See You There,
John Luther, Chair
BHNA Neighborhood Watch Program
