I will not be handing out punch cards at this event. They’re available through purchase of a New Member Kit only. 

You've probably hiked a portion of the Greenbelt before, but have you ever seen the whole thing? We'll meet at 2201 Barton Springs Rd, will park half of the cars there, and then shuttle out to begin the hike at the far end ("Hill of Life" trailhead: 1710 Camp Craft Road). Volunteers to drive needed! Actual hike likely to begin closer to 9:30 AM.
