Saturday May 11, 2013 saw an energetic group from LBJ Liberal Arts and Science Academy and several other volunteers and crew leaders do Spring trail widening along 2 miles of the Bull Creek Greenbelt Trail, and a Firewise Management wildfire suppression and old oak tree preservation all in one project, removing small new growth understory and cutting it into small pieces and laying it flat under the canopy of a majestic oak tree. This prevents a wildfire from jumping to the oak canopy which would kill it, and directs any fire close to the ground which does less damage and can be fought more easily.
