Description
We're celebrating this National Public Lands Day with a riparian restoration success!

In 2004, biologists and volunteers planted trees, buried irrigation lines, and constructed deer fencing along the bank of Slaughter Creek. Years later, this project is functioning well all on its own. We'll remove the man-made remnants of this project and take a hike on a beautiful piece of Austin's Water Quality Protection Lands. (This area was recently treated with prescribed fire - we'll see the native plants thriving in response!)

Please come prepared for a rugged wilderness experience with a water bottle, sturdy boots, and long pants. Learn more at www.austintexas.gov/wildlandevents

This event will take place on 9/24 at the Slaughter Creek Trail
