Daffodil Volunteers Needed This Week

Trinity River Campus is seeking faculty, staff and student volunteers to establish a life-long legacy along Trinity River with the launch of Project Daffodil Thursday, Nov. 19. Volunteers primarily are needed to plant native Texas daffodil bulbs along the Trinity River near the Seventh Street bridge.

Volunteers are being asked to work one-hour shifts between noon and 4 p.m.  At least 15 volunteers are needed for each hour to plant about 1,800 bulbs. Additionally, a couple of volunteers are needed Thursday morning to till the area to be planted.

Project Daffodil is being implemented in conjunction with Streams and Valleys, Inc., formed in 1969 to coordinate the beautification and recreational development of the Trinity River and its tributaries in Fort Worth and Tarrant County.

Tillers will be provided by Streams and Valleys. Daffodils are being supplied by a generous donor who is willing to provide all the daffodils needed.  Volunteers are asked to supply their own small shovel and gloves, although some are available for use.

Volunteers are asked to RSVP to Laura Escamilla at 817-515-1194 or laura.escamilla@tccd.edu by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17.

Special note to Faculty:   Streams and Valleys Executive Director Adelaide Leavens is available to discuss Project Daffodil and Stream and Valleys in TCC classes.
