Meet the Trail Conservancy

Friday, September 23, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

In an effort to more accurately reflect its official role as the main steward of the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail, the Trail Foundation has rebranded and will now be known as the Trail Conservancy. To celebrate, the conservancy will be hosting a community event this Saturday, Sept. 24, at Shoal Beach from 9 a.m. to noon. The event will feature Trail Conservancy CEO Heidi Anderson, as well as Mayor Steve Adler, U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett and Catherine Robb as speakers as well as live music, games and merch. “At our core, we’re still the same organization the community has grown to know, love and trust. This new name better aligns with our mission and vision to enhance and protect the Butler Trail,” Anderson said, in a statement to the press. “We remain dedicated to serving this community by building and maintaining beautiful outdoor spaces that are accessible to all Austinites. I look forward to reintroducing everyone to the Trail Conservancy and kicking off a new chapter for our organization.”
