Description
The endangered Barton Springs Salamanders need your help! We need volunteer help for a sandbag brigade at Sunken Gardens, a historic site at Zilker Park that is also a protective habitat for the Barton Springs Salamander. The waterfall area is failing at the site and we need volunteers to move sandbags into the waterfall area. Equipment cannot get inside the fence there, hence the need for a brigade to move material between the fence and the waterfall.

Sunken Gardens is located off of Azie Morton Road in Zilker Park, and parking is shared with the adjacent ballfield


APF will provide snacks and gloves to the volunteers. Please bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated! Be ready to do some heavy lifting and wear long pants and sturdy shoes!
