PPC to Host Walking Tour of Shoal Creek Restoration Project

In cooperation with the Old Enfield Neighborhood Association, Pease Park Conservancy invites you to join us on February 27th for an informational walking tour of the City of Austin Watershed Protection Department's Shoal Creek Restoration Project. The tour and discussion will be lead by WPD Project Lead, Clayton Ernst.

"The Shoal Creek project aims to provide erosion protection in Shoal Creek, improve the quality of stormwater runoff that enters the area, and restore native vegetation along the creek corridor.

The desired solutions will retain or restore the natural character of the Shoal Creek Greenbelt and integrate with desired park uses."

This will be a great opportunity for neighbors, park users, and the general public to better understand the many components of the project. The tour will begin at 2:00 near the historic picnic tables located at 1100 Kingsbury Street and proceed north. Folks are encouraged to wear walking shoes as the project area extends into the off-leash dog area near Gaston Avenue and includes both sides of Shoal Creek.

The walking tour will be FREE; however, we ask that folks register in advance so we have an idea of the number of participants. You can register HERE.
