Join Claude Morris for a day on the Colorado River monitoring birds, vegetation and wildlife! This long-term citizen science project helps the Austin-Bastrop River Corridor Partnership learn more about the ecology of the Colorado River. Meet at the Austin Water Center for Environmental Research parking lot at 8:00 am. You MUST provide your own kayak or canoe. Trips typically last 5-9 hours.
Check out the Austin-Bastrop River Corridor Partnership Facebook Page for updates regarding trips and other useful information about this unique riparian zone. The Austin-Bastrop River Corridor Partnership is a coalition of agencies, organizations, and individuals formed in 2003. They seek to increase public awareness of the values, issues and concerns along this stretch of the Colorado River.
