Event Details

This workshop is designed to help explain the significance of the BCP and coordinate efforts of infrastructure service providers (powerlines, waterlines, etc.) that cross the BCP or that pass through endangered species habitat outside of the preserve.*  If you are responsible for planning, constructing, or maintaining public service infrastructure in western Travis County or Austin, please plan to attend the 4 .5-hour training workshop. 

 

This is a great opportunity to:

  • Learn about the BCP and procedures for projects in sensitive habitat
  • Hear from experts on oak wilt and other corridor considerations
  • Ask questions of management staff from the BCP, Austin Energy, LCRA and others
  • If you are field personell, there will be a hands-on section of the training held on a nearby preserve.

 

Please feel free to pass this invitation along to others.

 

*BACKGROUND: In 1996, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) issued a 30-year regional permit to the City of Austin and Travis County that allows incidental “take” of eight endangered species. “Take” could include the removal of occupied endangered species habitat or species displacement due to development of habitat areas. The permit holders created the Balcones Canyonlands Conservation Plan (BCCP) which established the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve (BCP) to protect the 8 endangered species which include the golden-cheeked warbler, black-capped vireo, 6 cave invertebrates and 27 species of concern.
