Luv for the Santa Fe Trestle Trail
The new Trinity Conservation Corps Grant provided by Southwest Airlines through The Trinity Trust, has resulted in a flurry of restoration and beautification work for the Santa Fe Trestle Trail. The Customer Support and Services department is training 150 team members in Dallas.
As part of the training, the teams are taking five afternoons and performing community service projects at the Santa Fe Trestle Trail in August and September. It will take gallons of water to keep them hydrated and 300 plants to keep them working!
An important part of eco-restoration is clearing out invasive species. In the heat of Texas, without weed removal, the native species must compete for nutrients and water against the invasive varieties. So, Southwest Airline employees are showing their luv and stamina by clearing planting beds and adding new plant species such as: inland sea oats, turkscap, dewberry (wild blackberry variety), and wine cup. We’re nuts about Southwest!
