Join EA staff and volunteers for a morning of volunteering at Circle Acres.
With wetland waters receding, we're finding lots of litter left behind by stormwater runoff. Help us keep Circle Acres beautiful, clean and safe, and enjoy a morning in one of the most beautiful, unique natural areas in Austin. Bring water and dress for the weather with sturdy, closed-toe shoes.
Directions: Entrances to Circle Acres are located off of Grove Boulevard (just before the entrance to Roy G. Guerrero Park) & 420 Kemp Street (look for the concrete letters leaning against the fence). Please park in the parking lot at Roy G. or on Kemp Street.
Sign up to receive inclement weather updates and let us know if you have any questions. We hope to see you there!
More about Circle Acres Nature Preserve:
A 10 acre site of wetland, forest, and grassland within the neighborhood of Montopolis, Circle Acres is an important part of the Colorado River Watershed ecosystem, and a habitat for over 150 bird species along with deer, turtles, and other wildlife.
This site has suffered a series of destructive uses: overfarming by early European settlers, quarrying, landfill, and illegal dumping site. It has been restored through the efforts of several organizations (including the Rhizome Collective and Ecology Action) hundreds of volunteer hours, and the regenerative power of nature. Ecology Action continues this restoration and preservation work through ongoing litter abatement, advocacy, and bioremediation
Circle Acres is open to our Montopolis neighbors, and the general public, from dawn to dusk.
