Travis Audubon board members and Solluna Builders recently held a groundbreaking ceremony at Baker Sanctuary. They celebrated the promise of a bright future for this 715+ acre preserve as new improvements will help lead the way for continued robust conservation efforts of the endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler and its treasured habitat. Construction has begun on a new land steward’s residence and maintenance barn. The Jackie Arnold Education Pavilion will be upgraded with new flushing toilets. The historic cedar-chopping cabin – former home of the Bakers – as well as a stone bunkhouse will also be restored. All improvements are expected to be completed in 2018.
