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.
