After months of planning and fundraising, employees of Fire and the other City departments at 4201 Ed Bluestein held three workdays recently, and have almost completed a wildlife habitat garden in the courtyard adjacent to the employee entrance. Nine trees were planted (made possible with a grant from Austin Energy’s Urban Heat Island Mitigation project) and many smaller plants. Still to come are a water feature, benches, and a mosaic.
Also, Firefighters at Station 20 participated in a very successful habitat project at their station. Congratulations to FF Steve Hope (E20/B) and the habitat steward volunteers who helped make it happen. Follow the link www.ci.austin.tx.us/parks/wildlifehabitatprojects.htm for more.
