TRS CHICKEN FAJITA BOOTH AT EEYORE’S A BIG SUCCESS!!!
We grossed an amazing $7,918 with a net profit of over $4,000. Thirty-eight volunteers donated 104 hours of labor…and I mean it, they ROCKED! We grilled, cut, and rolled 350 lbs. of chicken; heated 1,500 flour tortillas and 480 corn tortillas; garnished with 36 lbs. of shredded cheese and 13 gallons of pico de gallo; and sold out of lemonade after 50 gallons.
If you want to get in on the fun for next year, contact us and we’ll get you on our mailing list. Eeyore’s is just TOO much fun!
GRANT AWARDED TO TRS
Great news! Save Barton Creek Association (SBCA) is the recipient of a $48,800 grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife in partnership with Texas River School. This grant will allow us to take 240 kids through three different canoe trips – River Sense, Discover the Source, and Find & Capture – on three different dates for a total of 720 river days.
Discover the Source, our oldest program, is a canoeing experience that emphasizes the discovery and importance of ‘the source’ at Barton Springs Pool.
River Sense, now in its third year, was created to fulfill a need for more river safety in our fast-growing city. This program includes a short online quiz, called “River Sensibles,” that tests students’ recall of what they learned while on the river.
Find & Capture – an orienteering lesson, kayaking tutorial, and photo scavenger hunt along Barton Creek – is our newest program created to encourage teamwork, problem-solving, and creative photography.
