Join Austin Parks Foundation to volunteer or take a guided hike at one of several parks across the city! National Trails Day events nationally involve a broad array of activities from hiking to birding. Here in Austin, Austin Parks Foundation, Texas Conservation Corps, and Hill Country Conservancy are partnering to improve our trails with trail clean up, maintenance, and mulching projects. This year, we are also offering several educational guided hikes to help you discover your new favorite Austin trail. After the event, join us for a volunteer appreciation party with refreshments, family-friendly fun, and live bluegrass by The Lost Pines.
We'll be playing a special gospel set with special guests for this great, family-friendly festival at the historic Latex Theatre in Downtown Llano.

We’re delighted to have Lynn and Tom Meredith as honorary co-chairs at the best fundraising event in the area that is exclusively focused on local food and beverages with an emphasis on fresh, humanely raised, sustainably grown food deliciously prepared by chefs who source locally! The evening will include live music, presentation of the Sustainable Food Changemakers award, a brief program, and delicious local food and beverages.

Your sponsorship will continue to support a multitude of programs including Sprouting Healthy Kids which is a Farm to School and Food Systems Education program. Sprouting Healthy Kids is committed to teaching children the value of real, unprocessed food and stemming the increase in childhood obesity. This project connects local farmers to school campuses, increasing the amount of fresh, nutritious produce in the cafeteria and engaging children in growing their own food in school gardens. With the help of generous supporters, last year, we were able to serve over 30,000 children through Sprouting Healthy Kids as well as 300,000 Central Texans through all of our programs. We hope that you will join us in celebrating our 40th anniversary by purchasing your ticket or table today!

“The Lost Pines took root in Austin in 2007 and moved from street corner busking to local and festival stages. Their recent Lloyd Maines produced ‘Sweet Honey’ is the band’s second album effort, following the success of their 2008 debut, ‘Middle of the Morning’. “Singing Voice” takes off as album opener like it heard the starting gun and the only goal is the finish line. Stepping and dancing is the default setting for The Lost Pines catalog. The band moves with a rhythm carved into place from first note to last buzz. The groove stays in place like it was set in stone. The solid bottom lets notes and voices flash, with co-lead vocalist Talia Bryce and Christian Ward locking into step and playing tag as needed throughout ‘Sweet Honey’. Like the album title suggests, the songs included in ‘Sweet Honey’ go down easy. ”
