Spring quickly turns to summer in these parts – and summer can be brutal. Native and adapted plants can help you get through the heat with a minimum of watering and maintenance and help your neighbors ( anoles, armadillos, bats, bees, butterflies, geckos, etc ) by providing habitat and food for our local and migrating wildlife.
The City of Austin Watershed Protection Department developed this plant guide in collaboration with local nurseries and the Travis County Ag Extension:
On Friday, January 6, The Austin Parks Foundation presented BCNA with a check for $16,000 – the grant we were awarded in November for West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt trail enhancements.
And the money is already spent – all work was completed in the last week of December. Look for a Grand Opening ceremony in March, once it warms up a bit and the greenbelt is “green” again.

Our sincere thanks to the Austin Parks Foundation for their support!
