Stillhouse Hollow: A Window to Nature

Join us to learn more about the natural features, native plants, and resident and migratory birds that inhabit this NW Austin suburban setting. Jane Tillman is a capital Area Master Naturalist and a Travis Audubon member who regularly visits Stillhouse and has recorded 66 bird species there.

Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a guardian.

    Mark and Jane are wonderful guides - helpful and friendly. I'm glad that the City of Austin has preserved this area from future development. Wish that it had happened sooner so that the Jollyville Salamanders could still call it home.
