Trinity River Volunteer Day: August Cleanup & Seedball Workshop

Trinity River Volunteer Day: August Cleanup & Seedball Workshop

Join us on Saturday, August 31st 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 Trinity Overlook Park at Commerce Street and Beckley Avenue.

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.

The Trinity River is our river. All of us can contribute to the care and maintenance of the River. From wetlands, forests, and prairies to recreational areas, trails, and overlooks, volunteers help to keep the river clean and green by removing debris and invasive plants from the landscape and water and planting and caring for native plants.

This volunteer project is part of the Trinity Park Conservancy Volunteer Program, sponsored by Southwest Airlines.


Weather Policy
In the event of inclement weather – including excessive heat advisories or storms – the Conservancy will contact registrants 24 hours in advance of the scheduled event.
