Be a part of the Waller Creek conversation
Wednesday, May 30, 2018 by Katy McElroy
It’s time for this year’s second Waller Creek Conservancy public meeting series. At these two Conversation Forums, the conservancy would like members of the community “to share stories, photos, and oral histories … in hopes of preserving the unique history that encompasses the Waller Creek area.” The conversations will be Saturday, June 2, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Metz Recreation Center and Wednesday, June 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Austin Central Library. The conversations will begin with a project update from the conservancy, followed by an introduction to the history study that the conservancy has been conducting along with HHM & Associates. Then, participants will be invited to scan their own Waller Creek area-related historical photos and documents and record their own oral histories with volunteers from Preservation Austin. There will also be stations with more information about the area’s history and Waller Creek projects. Spanish interpretation and child care will be available, as well as snacks.
