Slide background


The Shoal Creek Conservancy
was formed in 2013 to help improve Shoal Creek
for all Austinites - present and future.

Shoal Creek is in the heart of Austin, Texas. In 1839, it was the city’s original western boundary. Today, it is an artery into its urban core. In recent years, conditions in and around this unique Austin treasure have declined, and we feel restoring and protecting Shoal Creek will make Austin a more vibrant place to live, work and recreate.

Shoal Creek Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Conservancy’s mission is to preserve, protect, and enhance the ecological, social, and cultural vibrancy of Shoal Creek. The Conservancy’s vision is that Shoal Creek will be a vibrant corridor that integrates the flow of water and people, engages the community, and inspires the public. The scope of the Conservancy’s work is the 13-square mile Shoal Creek Watershed, which includes the 11-mile creek and its tributaries as well as 3.25 miles of existing Shoal Creek trail and over 12  parks.
