2017 Annual Membership Gala
On November 20th, Save Barton Creek Association hosted our annual membership gala, an Austin environmental tradition. As usual, the iconic Bill Oliver played during happy hour on the patio of the Zilker Clubhouse. Guests wined and dined amid a spectacular view of the Austin skyline. SBCA was proud to announce the new board of our organization, summarize our accomplishments of this past year, and give awards to outstanding members of our community.
- Completing our Goat Cave Karst Preserve Restoration Project
- Pressing for “No Discharge into Onion Creek” in any negotiated settlement between the cities of Austin and Dripping Springs
- Partnering with environmental groups to promote a resolution supporting Green Stormwater Infrastructure, which was unanimously passed by the Austin City Council on June 15
- Participating in Austin’s CodeNEXT process to promote the inclusion of the best water quality and flood controls in the city’s land development code.
