It was interesting to see this creek after seeing it several months ago because so much has grown. I picked up trash with another club I'm involved in, and it was a great opportunity to help clean up such a beautiful part of Austin.
I picked out weeds with an organization called GeoFORCE, and it was a great chance to see how the creek has grown. I really love doing outdoor activities, so this was a great chance to give back to the environment.
For this event I had the opportunity to volunteer at Oakwood Cemetery. We helped in picking up trash and leaves. However, the moments I enjoyed the most was hearing the organizers' stories in regards to the cemetery 's history. In addition, my TIP mentor group was able to create a stronger bond as an outcome of this event.
