The Bull Creek Watershed...the Galapagos of Texas
A few miles west of urban Austin is a place where a creek flows through stunning wooded canyons and rocky hills. Golden-cheeked warblers nest in the oak-juniper and there have been bobcat sightings in the hills.
This area, known as the Bull Creek Watershed, is a unique landscape of graceful waterfalls, soaring limestone cliffs, moss and fern covered seeps and enchanting hilltop vistas. Today, parts of the watershed are a reminder of how western Travis County looked hundreds of years ago.
About the Foundation...
The Bull Creek Foundation (BCF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting a harmonious balance between nature, recreation, and sustainable economic development within the 32 square mile Bull Creek watershed. The watershed includes high quality ecological areas with limestone seeps, springs, and waterways; scenic cliffs and waterfalls; unique archeological and cultural features; and rare plant and animal life. The watershed's boundaries can roughly be defined as the area inside highways 620 and 183, Mesa Drive, and just south of FM 2222.
