On The Trail

We work with individuals, businesses, corporations, and community groups to do hands-on trail improvement projects such as planting, weeding, and other ecological restoration activities on the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail.

As we increase our efforts out on the Trail, we rely on the help of our volunteers. Activities will include mulching, seeding, seed collection, invasive plant species removal, and various other ecological activities. Austin’s Watershed Protection Department generously sponsors several TTC volunteer activities as part of its Lady Bird Lake Shoreline Stewardship Program. If you are a corporate group interested in a private volunteer workday with The Trail Foundation, please read more about our ‘Day in the Dirt’!
