Shoal Creek Conservancy Launches
The new Shoal Creek Conservancy (SCC) held its launch party November 13th. Stakeholders, donors, and members gathered with city officials and SCC Executive Director Joanna Wolaver to celebrate Shoal Creek and the Conservancy’s goals for improving the surrounding greenbelt and hike-and-bike corridor through Downtown. Visit the Shoal Creek Conservancy, online here. Now both Waller Creek and Shoal Creek have their own conservancy groups, engaged in fundraising and planning for improvements to better celebrate these Central Austin natural treasures. Photographer Ted Lee Eubanks has captured the creek’s natural beauty and urban setting in a compelling series of copyrighted photos: Shoal Creek Portfolio.
