Wild Wednesdays – Ecology (Environment)

Presented in partnership with Families in Nature
Location: Waterloo Park
Date: August 3, 2022
Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Ecology is the study of the relationships between living organisms, including humans, and their physical environment.

Throughout Waterloo Greenway, we’re transforming Waller Creek from a piece of rundown infrastructure into a natural oasis — one that flows across city divides and leaves greater health and happiness for every Austinite in its gentle wake. Every step of the way, we’re committed to improving environmental conditions and establishing collaborative approaches to monitoring and stewardship. Join us to explore the ecological diversity and restoration of Waterloo Park and Waller Creek!

Wild Wednesdays take place on the Meredith Heritage Tree Deck at Waterloo Park located at 1301 Trinity St.
