Seeding and Planting:
The Trail Conservancy continues to enhance the Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail by planting a diversity of native plant species following the invasive work by contractors. A combination of sedges, grasses, and forbs provides a diverse ground cover and suppresses weed pressure while insulating the bank from erosion in regions between the Trail and the Lake.

The natural areas serve both resident wildlife and countless migratory birds and butterflies.
The Trail Conservancy's mission is to protect, enhance, and connect the Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake for the benefit of all.
