Water Quality and Development on Lady Bird Lake: A Kayak Tour (Friday)

Water Quality and Development on Lady Bird Lake: A Kayak Tour (Friday)

The tour provides a unique perspective (from a kayak!) on the environmental challenges Austin is facing while creating an active and accessible urban waterfront. Examine how ongoing capital projects and waterfront development have impacted Austin’s lakes and creeks, as well as the public’s access to these resources. The tour will includes stops to discuss three City projects and programs which impact Austin streams and lakes: the Waller Creek Tunnel Project, the South Central Waterfront Planning Area, and the Seaholm Development/Shoal Creek Restoration Project.
