Throughout February, Lake Travis Fire & Rescue (LTFR), with assistance from the Texas Conservation Corps, installed the first section of a shaded fuel break between the Sanctuary and the adjacent Cypress Creek neighborhood. This 100 foot wide fuel break is designed to minimize the chance of fire entering the preserve from the neighborhood and vice versa while still providing habitat for the golden-cheeked warbler (GCWA). LTFR will complete the project in September 2019, after the GCWA have made their way back south.
