Those who wish to stay and visit a bit longer can join us at 12:30 pm for an informal lunch at Del Nanno (the “grandpa house”). Please bring your own lunch, snacks, and water.
The 1200 acre Spicewood Ranch is approximately 1 hour west of Austin between Spicewood, Texas and the Colorado River. Environmental Survey Consulting has been conducting active restoration on the ranch since 1988. We will explore areas of management successes that may include prairies, live oak woodlands and savannas, cedar breaks, riparian areas, and post oak savannas. Our restoration theories and practices will be discussed with an emphasis on what we have learned about restoration of the grasses in the heavily overgrazed areas and the more difficult tasks of restoring the forbs and woody species depleted by decades of browsing by deer and goats. A species list of almost 600 species found on the ranch will be available, but the emphasis of this field trip will be the management activities.
Please plan to arrive at “Del Nanno” no later than 9:45 am.
