AUSTIN (KXAN) — You’ve seen them use performance art to honor Austin trash collectors and utility workers.

This April, Forklift Danceworks will return with a celebration of the men and women who take care of Austin’s trees.

Their performance is called “The Trees of Govalle“. The dance is on April 11 and 12 at 8 p.m. at Govalle Park in East Austin.

To pay for the event, Forklift Danceworks is hosting a kickstarter until March 3. They are trying to raise $15,000. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
