Organization (ECO), Phi Sigma Alpha and the Texas State Athletic Trainers Association. Ben Taylor, a member of the San Marcos Greenbelt Alliance, led the project. The volunteers trimmed trees along a future hiking trail, picked up approximately 50 lbs. of trash and 30 lbs. of recyclables, and removed bastard cabbage. After their hard work they relaxed and enjoyed a pizza lunch. Ben invited the participants to future workdays at the site when the trails will be developed in this beautiful natural area along the Blanco River.
