Our first project after returning from our disaster deployment to the U.S. Virgin Islands is a long-term expansion of the violet crown trail. Our team is energized and excited to be back in Texas, back in Austin, and to be able to take part in such a pinnacle project for our city. We’re learning a ton and practicing various new skills -like learning to drive a skid steer to help dig out the new trail. It feels amazing to be apart of a project that will impact the city of Austin for years to come.
So far, we’ve created a french drain, armored a creek crossing, and dug (and dug and dug) out the first section of trail. We still have plenty of work to complete over the next few weeks, but seeing our trail begin to look like an actual trail is great motivation to keep working hard
