What we’re about
This is the official Meetup page of the Save Barton Creek Association (SBCA). We protect the creeks and aquifer of the Barton Springs- Edwards Aquifer through conservation, education, and advocacy.
We will meet once or twice a month for hikes along the Greenbelt, volunteer opportunities, and educational outings. We also host SBCA Happy Hours the second week of each month. These Happy Hours feature a speaker related to our mission.
We also hope you will join SBCA by contributing to dialogue on our discussion boards.
We look forward to meeting you, whether you're new to Austin or are a life-long Barton Creek enthusiast.

Join SBCA on this collaboration workday with Ecology Action out at Roy G. Guerrero Park! Meet and park in Roy G Guerrero Park, Grove Entrance (NOT Pleasent Valley!).
