On Saturday, May 21st, 2011, 81 volunteers spent the morning  planting 3600 plants in the Blue Hole Regional Park. This event, organized by Friends of Blue Hole, reduced the cost of park development by 217 man-hours! A  special thank you to the Hays County Master  Naturalist, Wimberley Valley  Watershed Association, Keep Wimberley Beautiful  and Wimberley  Boy Scout Troop 127 & Pack 127. The Master Naturalists were simply  amazing in their skill and knowledge and the Boy Scouts worked on a Conservation  Project for their Camping Merit Badge. Additional Plant the Park Days will be held as the need arises.

Volunteers worked under the direction of Master Gardeners, Master Naturalists, and landscape architects.
