Saturday, July 27, 2019, 9:00 AM

Join us on Saturday, July 27th from 9:00 - 11:00 AM for a fun, family-friendly volunteer trash cleanup and seedball making day in Harold Simmons Park! Meet us at the Felix H. Lozada, Sr. Gateway on the west side of the Ron Kirk Pedestrian Bridge. The Great Seed Bomb will be leading the Seedball Workshop where you can get your hands dirty and make native grass and wildflower seedballs that will be dispersed in different areas along the Trinity River Corridor. Sowing seedballs helps to reinforce habitats vital to the migration of monarchs, the well-being of bees, and adds beauty to our green spaces.Sign up for this event today on Eventbrite, call 214.740.1616 or email volunteer@trinityparkconservancy.org with any questions.
