Gray Natural Area in Arlington. Volunteers were tasked with off-loading and transporting mulch to replenish the trail for plants to grow.

UTA students volunteered to spend their Saturday morning helping improve the trails at the O.S. Gray Natural Area in Arlington. Students were accompanied by Kevin Donovan, president of Friends of O.S. Gray Natural Area, and Glenn McCoy, Friends of O.S. Gray Natural Area member, as they moved mulch from one location to the other, creating a trail for plants to regrow along the route.

The volunteers started early in the morning to beat the heat. The group was also given a tour of the area and shown a patch of prairie bluestem that they are trying to preserve.
