About The Trail Foundation’s Ecological Restoration Projects
The natural areas around Lady Bird Lake provide an important refuge for wildlife within the city and connect riparian corridors as well as numerous protected areas up and downstream. Wildlife comes to the site for food, water, and shelter provided by the Lake and the surrounding natural areas. The natural areas serve both resident wildlife and numerous migratory birds and butterflies. Without large stands of emergent vegetation, these animals are disappearing from the largest and most complete natural area in downtown Austin. TTC has increased efforts in recent years to restore these habitats.
