Plant trees, save our springs, and watch the rivers
We can all agree that trees are a good thing, and the impetus behind TreeFolks is simple: to build stronger communities through planting, growing, and caring for trees. Join their tree planting events, help support a reforestation project, or get a free tree at one of their giveaways.
For Austinites, Barton Springs feels like the beating heart of our city… so you’d think that it’s immune to development. Well, it’s not, and the the Save Our Springs alliance has worked hard for years to protect all offshoots of the Edwards Aquifer with a special emphasis on Barton Springs. Donate time, or money, or hacktivism.
Speaking of rivers, Austin Youth River Watch engages youth with the environment through education and adventure. Students collect, analyze, and publish water-quality data from Austin-area streams and rivers, learning to work for positive outcomes for themselves and the environment.
