Hi Wheatsville friends and fans!

Short e-mail  this week, but there is a LOT lined up for the rest of March, so STAY TUNED!

Wheatsville is the major sponsor of this Saturday's It's My Park Day!

It's My Park Day is a citywide volunteer event to improve Austin's parks and greenspaces.

Projects, led by neighborhood groups, individuals, and organizations, range from simple pruning and painting to highly technical drainage control improvements. Some groups include live music, an educational component, a picnic, or other activities. Find an event near you!
