Owl Release/Spring Creek Greenway Project partners with Friends

4 Oct. 2013 Posted by Center Director in News from the Center

Today it was announced that the Spring Creek Greenway Project will partner with Friends of Texas Wildlife.  The Spring Creek Greenway Project will connect and protect 12,000 acres on both sides of Spring Creek.  This land will be set aside as a wildlife preserve and will also serve as a wonderful outdoor recreation mecca including hiking trails, canoe and kayak launches, educational programs, bike paths, lakes for fishing, camping sites, equestrian trails, and picnic areas.  Since this land will remain undeveloped, it is a perfect habitat for Friends of Texas Wildlife to release rehabilitated wildlife of all types.  Today we celebrated this new partnership by releasing a rehabilitated juvenile barred owl at the Nature Center on Riley Fuzzell Road in Spring.  Many thanks to Commissioner James Noack and his staff, the Spring Creek Greenway Nature Center staff, and the Bayou Land Conservancy group for participating in this release.  For more information on the Greenway Project, please go to the following link:

We look forward to more releases in the future and are so excited to have such a wonderful habitat in which to release our rehabilitated wildlife.
