Share stories of Shoal Creek

Tuesday, May 18, 2021 by Tai Moses

Shoal Creek Conservancy and Austin Parks and Recreation are partnering up to create a self-guided audio walking tour of the Shoal Creek watershed. Ivey Kaiser, SCC’s executive director, said in a news release, “We have heard lots of requests for an audio walking tour along Shoal Creek, and with the limitations of organizing group tours over the past year, we decided that it’s a great time to create this free, digital resource for folks who want to see and learn about the historically significant spaces along Shoal Creek without necessarily attending a group event.” SCC is inviting community members to participate and contribute their own stories of the area’s rich history. “We want this tour to represent the diversity of the communities who lived along Shoal Creek and tell stories of the events that happened long before our time,” Kaiser said. “Input from the Austin community will be critical for an interesting, well-rounded tour that amplifies all voices.” If you have family stories or know historic details about Shoal Creek, fill out the Public Input Survey, available through June 7.
