Earth Day Service Event at Jacob's Well Natural Area
Saturday May 2nd, 2009
From 8 AM until Noon

This is an archived article. Enjoy reading about Jacob’s Well, please take note that major changes have taken place since 2013. Current information can be found here.

Please join the Wimberley Valley Watershed Association, local schools and community groups Saturday May, 2nd to celebrate the preservation of the land around Jacob's Well.

The service project will be held at the Jacob's Well Natural Area in Wimberley from 8:00am until 12:00 noon.  Work crews will join American Youth Works, Texas Stream Team, and Cypress Creek Project volunteers to restore the land surrounding Jacob's Well. This on-site project is one of many community programs being developed to protect Jacob's Well through land conservation, aquifer protection and environmental education.

The main focus on May 2nd will be to build a segment of the "Raindrop Trail" - the first of many planned trails for exploring the Jacob's Well Natural Area.

The WVWA is also removing over 100,000 square feet of impervious cover from the site to restore a native grass and wildflower meadow. Participants are asked to bring work gloves, water containers and sunscreen. Upon arrival, participants will sign-in and be matched with teams. This is a family event and all ages are welcome to participate. Light refreshments and music will be provided following the tree planting and trail building. In addition, participants are asked to bring any personal photos they may have of past events or family outings at Jacob's Well to be scanned at Camp Jacob Education Center. This archive is designed to begin documenting the history of Jacob's Well.

To reach the site, turn onto Jacob's Well Road from RR 12 or FM 2325 and follow the signs. Free parking will be available; carpooling is recommended.
