A staple event in the Austin environmental world, Save Barton Creek Association’s Annual Awards Banquet is almost here. This party will celebrate SBCA’s work this year, acknowledge a few of our key partners who have done great things this year, and ring in a new SBCA board. As always, get ready for some Salt Lick BBQ, beverages including beer from ABGB, music by Bill Oliver, and a darn good time.

This is a free event, but donations are always appreciated.

…I will fight for Barton Creek, Boggy Creek, cedar-covered limestone hills, blazing star, and bluebonnets, golden cheeked warblers and black-capped vireos, and so on through the catalogue of the natural environment of Austin, Texas. It is through this natural environment that I love America.
