Veteran Austinite

 

 

 

Oakwood Cemetery Chapel and Cemetery Operations are looking for volunteers who can walk the cemeteries to help geolocate and document veteran headstones on specific volunteer days. 

Using their own phones, with the supplemental GNSS location device provided, volunteers can upload the latitude and longitude points of the headstones and contribute to a full listing of every veteran buried within City of Austin cemeteries.

This field work will add to a public-facing searchable map of burials which can be viewed as part of the digital exhibit, To Serve: Honoring Veterans in Austin’s Cemeteries.

To volunteer, please email programs_conservation@austintexas.gov.

Help grow Austin mobility!

Moving outside improves our health, can reduce stress, and connects us with our environment. More people will spend time walking, biking, or rolling when they have safe, well-connected, and accessible routes in their community.

Austin Public Works and Austin Transportation invite you to give feedback on plans to expand mobility options that can help get more people outside and moving! ATX Walk Bike Roll is a project to update the Urban Trails, Bikeway, and Sidewalk Plans.

The first virtual public meeting for this project will be held on Aug. 11, 2021 in English and Spanish. Staff will explain how the City will update these plans and how residents can get involved. Community members are encouraged to ask questions, give feedback, and learn about next steps. 

Sign up to attend the first Virtual Public Meeting on August 11 at 7 p.m. 

Residents across the city will have many opportunities to get involved in ATX Walk Bike Roll. An easy first step is to take this quick poll! Three large public meetings will be held over the next two years and small meetings are scheduled to start in late Summer 2021. Learn more at: ATX Walk Bike Roll

Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) is proud to announce that the Our Parks, Our Future Long-Range Plan has won a 2021 National Planning Excellence Award from the American Planning Association (APA). APA’s National Planning Awards program recognizes outstanding planning efforts that help lead communities forward to a stronger, more equitable, and sustainable future. Award recipients are selected by a jury of planning practitioners and only one award recipient is selected in each of the four award categories.  

PARD's Long Range Plan provides a blueprint to guide land acquisition, capital improvements, and the development of programs and new amenities. The planning effort began with inventory, evaluation of park and facilities, an analysis of demographic data, and trends and industry standards for parks. Public outreach played a critical role throughout the process with in-depth engagement of citizens, park supporters, conservancies, neighborhood associations, nonprofit organizations, and public partners. 

“Austin’s Parks and Rec plan illustrates the vital importance of public and green space within a community, but also demonstrates how those spaces must be accessible to all members of the community regardless of race, ability, or gender,” said Kristen Asp, AICP, 2021 APA awards jury chair. “The jury was impressed with the strong level of accountability built into the plan so the community continues to be part of the planning process.”

The the song lyrics reflect on how Austinites, especially in Latino spaces, (restaurants, arts spaces, parks) have adapted to the new way of life.

 

 

"During these times it has been especially difficult for Austin artists especially musicians to continue our work in person since many bars and musical venues have closed bringing many challenges. We want to normalize the new ways of life to make people feel okay to do things differently in order to protect ourselves, our diverse cultural communities ¡Ponte las máscaras, Austin! Wear your masks!" - Güateque Son

Did you know that stacking rocks impacts soil, plants, and wildlife? 

Rock cairns have traditionally served as trail markers, but have recently become trendy on social media. What’s the harm in stacking a few rocks for fun? Actually, this seemingly innocuous act often has a critical impact on the delicate balance of nature. 

Also known as rock graffiti, stone stacks damage the ecosystem in a number of ways. This is especially true when the rocks are taken from a body of water. 
 

 

Stacking rocks is harmful because: 

  1. Stacking rocks in Austin’s creeks, rivers, and lakes can disturb the macroinvertebrates that call those rocks their home. This can have a cascade effect on the wellbeing of other animals in the ecosystem because the macroinvertebrates are a key part of the food chain. 

  1. Many land creatures use rocks for their habitats, too. Often birds build nests in rocks, plants incubate in the crevices, and insects live under them. When you move the rocks that they call home, they can die and this can cause a chain reaction within the food web. 

  1. Moving rocks dislodges the soil and disturbs natural habitats which can have a ripple effect on plant and animal life, including endangered species. A Biologist from Watershed Protection found a dead salamander at the bottom of a rock stack in Barton Creek. 

  1. Stacking rocks can lead hikers off the trail and cause people who rely on cairns for wayfinding to become lost. 

If you love nature, Leave No Trace (LNT). There are seven LNT principles. The fourth principle speaks specifically to behavior such as stacking rocks. 

Leave No Trace Principle 4: Leave What You Find 

  • Leave rocks, plants and other natural objects as you find them. 

  • Avoid introducing or transporting non-native species. 

  • Do not build structures, furniture, or dig trenches. 

  • Preserve the past: examine, but do not touch cultural or historic structures and artifacts. 

Learn more and spread the word about Leave No Trace at AustinTexas.gov/LeaveNoTrace.

As the weather starts to turn warm in Austin, The Parks and Recreation Department’s Aquatics Division looks forward to offering pool services to our community. As COVID-19 cases moderate, emphasis will shift towards expanding pool access through training and hiring lifeguards while observing and implementing comprehensive safety procedures for both staff and visitors.    

Being a lifeguard means prioritizing safety above all else. With guidance from local offices such as Austin Public Health, Center For Disease Control, and top-tier nationally recognized training protocols from Star Guard Elite, our goal is to keep staff safe while offering safe services and facilities to the public. 

Lifeguard Training in times of COVID-19

  • In order to maintain 6 feet social distance, courses will be limited to 5 participants per instructor, with a maximum of 10 participants. Participants are kept in the same group throughout the training course.
  • The courses will be held both indoors and outdoors. However, most of the instruction will be outdoors.
  • All participants are required to wear a mask during training except when practicing in-water rescues or CPR scenarios.    
  • Following guidelines set by the CDC and SGE, manikins and any other rescue equipment (rescue tubes, backboards, etc.) are sanitized between each usage using alcohol wipes or a bleach solution. Manikin lungs are also replaced between each usage.  
  • There will be no instances where mouth to mouth contact is required. CPR requires the need for lifeguards to administer ventilation breaths as opposed to standard compression-only technique. In these cases, one-way breather masks are used between the unresponsive person and the lifeguard. Practice of this lifesaving technique will be done with medical-grade manikins.  

We are currently accepting applications for lifegaurd positions.

Training and certification must be completed in order to be hired for a position.We are now training new and returning lifeguards for Spring/Summer 2021.
