Tour Circle Acres with STAR Central Texas - open to all, STAR membership meeting to follow.
Circle acres is located on roughly 9.7 acres in the Montopolis neighborhood of south east Austin. As a former landfill and brownfield, the site has suffered through a pattern of destructive uses but nonetheless bears a striking range of forest wetland, and grassland environments within an overwhelmingly urban context.
We will take a tour of Circle Acres and learn about Ecology Action. During the tour we will learn about the history of the site and transforming an old landfill, the history of Ecology Action, the new focus areas in the post-drop-off-center world, and what we can expect in the future at Circle Acres.
***After tour membership meeting is at Sawyers & Co, 4827 E Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 78702 ***
Visitors can park on Kemp and should not attempt to drive on to the site. There's a big concrete EA next to the driveway, walk down the hill and keep left. There will be someone waiting for you at the entrance and a sign.
STAR Central Texas (a group of public sector, private sector and non-profit individuals and organizations who work together to further efforts to reduce, reuse, recycle, compost and buy recycled in Central Texas).
