Seeking Volunteers

On Saturday February 17 there will be a workday at the Hill County rest area monarch waystations. This effort is part of a NPSOT project to maintain monarch waystations along Interstate 35. We will start on the southbound waystation at 9:00 am. Please come and go as your schedule allows. Most of the work will be weeding and pruning. We recommend that you bring the following items if you have them (trash bags and some tools will be provided): 

  • Gloves
  • Hat and Sunscreen
  • Knee pads or kneeling pad or towel to kneel on
  • Weeding tool, Pruners and Loppers
  • 5-gallon bucket
  • Mask if desired

The Hill County Southbound Rest Area is located at Exit 362A on Interstate 35, (about 5 miles south of Hillsboro, near Abbot). Access from Texas Interstate 35 is in the southbound direction only. If you are coming from the south (Waco) go past the rest area and take the first exit and do a U-turn, get back on the interstate going south and take Exit 362A.
