Twenty-six trees were planted on the Bryker Woods Elementary school campus and an irrigation system was installed to keep them watered while they grow. Over 100 volunteers came out to support the project on planting day.


The Bryker Woods PTA Campus Sustainability Committee completed this project with the purposes of beautifying the campus grounds, establishing trees for erosion control purposes, and providing a learning experience for the children involved. As stated in the application, “Our goal, while improving our campus sustainability, is to ensure student awareness and student involvement on campus. We want our students to graduate with an increased awareness of sustainability and a strong sense of value through their legacy and leadership”.

About Austin's Urban Forest Grant

Austin's Urban Forest Grant has been established to promote conservation and improvement projects that benefit Austin’s urban forest. This program is supported by the Urban Forest Replenishment Fund, which was created to mitigate the impact of tree removals. The Grant enhances the urban forest through projects associated with tree planting, education, public service announcements, award programs, disease control, inventorying, and other related efforts. Individuals, businesses, academic and private institutions, home owners associations, youth groups and non-profit organizations may apply for funding for projects that show a clear benefit to Austin’s urban forest.
