Trinity River Conservation Corps

The Trinity River Conservation Corps’ Corporate Day of Service was held on April 7, and more than 500 volunteers helped clean up the Trinity River Corridor. In total, volunteers disposed of more than 8,000 pounds of trash and invasive species, planted 60 native plants in pollinator beds and observed 69 different specials during the “bio-blitz,” which captured inventory of the biodiversity in the area using an app.

The morning kicked off with a rally featuring the Trinity Park Conservancy Vice Chairman and Boone Family Foundation President Garrett Boone, Southwest Airlines Communication and Outreach Managing Director Laurie Barnett, and Dallas Park and Recreation Urban Biologist Brett Johnson.  

The Trinity River Conservation Corps began in 2013 with a gift from Southwest Airlines to the Trinity Park Conservancy - formerly The Trinity Trust Foundation - to create a volunteer program in the Trinity corridor.

For more than a decade, the Trinity Park Conservancy - formerly The Trinity Trust Foundation - has advocated Dallas’ Trinity River Corridor Project and the Balanced Vision Plan by bringing awareness to the public, raising private funds and championing strong urban design for the city’s largest public green space. Projects have included the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, Margaret McDermott Bridges and Ronald Kirk Bridge; the Dallas CityDesign Studio; and trails in the Great Trinity Forest. In 2016, the Conservancy received a $50 million gift from Annette Simmons for the Trinity River Park as part of Dallas’ Balanced Vision Plan and the larger corridor project. The Conservancy will be responsible for the fundraising, education, design and development of the park.

Trinity River Conservation Corps

The Trinity River Conservation Corps’ Corporate Day of Service is April 7, and already more than 100 volunteers have signed up to participate. The day of service will take place within the Trinity River Corridor along the river and Cedar Crest Creek. Corporate leaders, organizations and individuals will remove invasive species, plant native grasses, help pick up trash and participate in a “bio-blitz,” which will capture inventory of the biodiversity in the area using an app.

The Trinity River Conservation Corps began in 2013 with a gift from Southwest Airlines to the Trinity Park Conservancy - formerly The Trinity Trust Foundation - to create a volunteer program in the Trinity corridor. Last year’s Corporate Day of Service resulted in more than 400 participants and 42 companies and organizations that collected 10,000 pounds of trash and invasive species and made thousands of seed balls to disburse in the corridor.

At 8:30 a.m., there will be a rally with remarks from corporate leaders and officials, followed by the cleanup until 12:00 p.m. at the Trinity River Corridor, Moore Park Gateway and Santa Fe Trestle Trail, 1837 E. 8th Street, Dallas, TX 75203.
