We have finally moved into our new office – which we have been anticipating for well over a year now. The office is situated in the Bouldin Creek Neighborhood in an old construction yard. Think warehouses, lumber piles, and unexpectedly a wonderful group of people that are all creative and inspiring local entrepreneurs.
These are just a few pictures of the awesome solar and water collection systems that have been installed at the River Camp. We have been using lots of the water collected to water the newly planted trees and garden.
The Lady Bird Lake Paddling Trail is the eighteenth paddling trail in Texas and arguably the most urban. The designation raises the awareness to all of Austin’s citizens and visitors that Lady Bird Lake is not only a safe place to recreate but a truly special resource right in downtown Austin (accessible by public transportation!).
We have lots and lots of photos – as I am sure you can imagine – but every once in a while, a few really wonderfully cute ones pop up. Here they are!
Texas River School has won the John Covert Watson Award for Vision by the Texas Children in Nature Collaborative.
Photo from the event with Executive Director and Founder Joe Kendall with award namesake Mr. John Covert Watson, what a thrill! The award is for vision and our vision is that ALL of our children will be able to enjoy, learn from and develop a relationship with our Rivers!
The Texas River School is pleased to announce that we have been awarded the Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD) Community Outdoor Outreach Program (Co-Op Grant) for $49,000 towards launching the Texas River School’s program Project PADDLE.
Project PADDLE is a program that will make it possible for grade school students who may not otherwise have the chance to experience on the water, educational, river adventures.
