If you’re in a do-gooder mood this weekend, here’s something to put on your schedule: Brush Bash, on Saturday, Jan. 30 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Tandy Hills Natural Area in Fort Worth. This is a yearly event in which volunteers help to clear the area of invasive and unwanted trees, brush, and trash. If you decide to attend, bring gloves, shoes, water, lunch, wheelbarrows, wagons, loppers and whatever other tools might be helpful. Coffee, tea and morning snacks will be provided. This would be a great volunteer event for any groups you might be a member of!
Tandy Hills is at 3400 View St. in Fort Worth. Find directions here.Subscribe to FW on the Cheap by e-mail and become a fan on Facebook.
