Notice how green the Great Lawn at Zilker looks? Jealous that you cannot get inside? Here’s a way to get a sneak preview:
Help finish up the Parks Department’s punch list of projects by volunteering to spread compost and mulch under trees, clean up cut sod strips, do some weeding and clean-up curbs and sidewalks. Tools, gloves, water, and cool ACL t-shirts will be supplied for the first 50 volunteers on each of the three volunteer days. Further, all volunteers will be eligible to win one of three sets of 2009 Austin City Limits Music Festival weekend passes, where one to be given away at each volunteer day. Everyone who participates from 9 to 12 is eligible to win a pair of Austin City Limits Music Festival three-day passes! This is huge, since the passes are now officially SOLD OUT.
Volunteer days are July 11, July 18, and July 25, so help mulch trees, weed the volleyball courts, pick up sod strips and clean up sidewalks and curbs at Zilker’s new Great Lawn, and then enjoy the fruits of your labor while watching Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, the Beastie Boys and more (assuming that you win, buy, or otherwise acquire the tickets).
There are 3 steps to be eligible to win:
- Sign up for the dates you will attend here (www.austinparks.org/volunteer.php).
- Arrive by 9 AM and be sure to sign in.
- Work until noon and stay for the drawing.
