Signs of a successful work day from Texas Wranglers with their auxiliary group “Little Sweethearts” 

Special Thanks to the “Adele and Creekmore Fath Foundation” for their generous  $25,000 grant!

This generous grant was used for critical needs, repairs and clearing of the damaged tree canopy along Parkway.  Working in conjunction with Keith Brown of the Austin Tree Experts and Angela Hanson, the head of the Austin Parks and Recreations Forestry Department, much work was accomplished including the removal of damaged trees. Additional work included trimming and fertilizing some of many Heritage trees. 

“Austin Tree Experts and the Adele and Creekmore Fath Foundation deserve everyone's thanks for making this professional tree care possible at Pease Park. It has been a tough decade or so for the park's trees and they really needed the attention. Pease and the Shoal Creek Greenbelt are the green lungs of central Austin and we need to keep their tree canopy healthy and thriving for the next generation.” Richard Craig said.

Sunday, Jan. 27 was the annual Dillo Dirt spreading event at Pease Park, an called "Down and Dirty."  The Texas Wranglers, the University of Texas men's service organization, came out to do the dirt spreading, along with their auxiliary, the "Little Sweethearts."

75 students were in the park who did a great job and are an outstanding group of young people. Michael Gaskin, president of the Texas Wranglers, deserves special praise for coordinating everything. High praises to perhaps on one of the most effective volunteer groups.
