Donors Toast to Baker Steward’s Home

On August 19th, Travis Audubon staff, board, and some donors gathered at Baker Sanctuary to celebrate the progress that has been made on the Steward’s Home. This home, built by Solluna Builders, will be occupied by Chris Murray, Travis Audubon’s Land Manager, his wife, Julie, and their two sons. They expect to move into the home October 2018.

Wayne Jeansonne, founder and president of Solluna Builders, provided attendees with insight into the environmentally-friendly aspects of the home, while Travis Audubon President Frances Cerbins, Board Member Clif Ladd, and Advisory Council Member Valarie Bristol spoke about the past, present, and future of Baker and its role in the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve.
