Join City of Austin Park Rangers for an exclusive tour of this little-seen City preserve! Indiangrass Wildlife Sanctuary is a nature preserve in northeast Austin on the north shore of Lake Walter E. Long. About 250 acres of critically endangered Blackland Prairie habitat are preserved here, and the meeting of grassland and lacustrine habitat make for truly spectacular winter birding. A hike through the preserve will take us to the lake, where we’ll paddle around the lakeshore looking for waterfowl.

Canoes and safety gear will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring their own binoculars, field guides, etc.

Participation is limited to 16. If you’d like to attend, please email Park Ranger Owen Moorhead at
