Description
Join Texas Conservation Corps as we help Balcones Canyonlands Preserve maintain a trail on their beautiful Snowden tract! We'll meet at the Snowden house and enjoy a ~25 minute hike to the project site. Work will include cutting back vegetation that's encroaching on the trail.

PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY Directions to site: Search for “Snowden Tract, Travis County BCP” in Google Maps - it should take you right to the entrance. We DO NOT recommend searching for 13043 FM 2769 in Google Maps even though that's our address. It will take you to the wrong place a little up the road. The entrance can be a little tricky to see when you're driving past. It's on the south/east side of FM 2769 just north of Abbotsbury Drive at the bottom of a steep hill, just before the guardrail begins. There's a small blue & white address sign with colored flagging tape on it that reads 13043, and we'll put an orange cone next to the address sign to show you where to turn.
