Monthly Birding And Nature Hikes
Hill Country Conservancy invites you to join in on one of their Monthly Birding and Nature Hikes at Nalle Bunny Run Wildlife Preserve. Every 3rd Saturday of the Month, the hikes are only $5.00 per attended and open to the general public. You must register through the website to attend.
Situated on the banks of the Colorado River, the 35-arcre Nalle Bunny Wildlife Preserve is an important habitat restoration project and an environmental treasure. In December 2000, the preserve was donated to Hill Country Conservancy and is named for Anne Byrd Nalle. Mrs. Nalle wanted for years to preserve her beloved “Bunny Run” for the public to enjoy. Her husband and on soon joined her in donating the land to Hill Country Conservancy. Her son and his wife still live on the adjoining land and partner with Hill Country Conservancy to manage the preserve. The conservation management of the 50 acre combined tracts with its preserved Lake Austin waterfront and proximity to Austin, make the Nalle Bunny Run Wildlife Preserve a visual and environmental masterpiece.
The preserve consists of five major habitat types including juniper-oak woodlands, a deciduous woodland, a sandy prairie, a mixed-species parkland, and riparian corridor along the Colorado River. All hikes are weather permitting. There are no restroom facilities on the preserve. Please leave your bicycles, motorized vehicles and pets at home.
