Join us on December 9 for happy hour with Brian Smith and Nathan Bendik, for an engaging co-presentation from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at The Tavern on W 12th street. They will be presenting jointly, representing both the Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District and the City of Austin Watershed Protection Department. They both have Habitat Conservation Plans to protect the Barton Springs Salamander and the Austin Blind Salamander. This past May, the BSEACD and the COA executed an Interlocal Agreement to coordinate thier BSS and ABS conservation efforts.
