Love Notes: A Hike at Bright Leaf Preserve

Saturday, October 8 was a cool, bright morning for our hike at Bright Leaf Preserve, located off 2222 between MoPac and 360. Our guide, Nancy Woolley, is a Capital Area Master Naturalist and Program Director for Bright Leaf Preserve. The hike began at 9:00, and for two and a half hours, we hiked over the hills and through the canyons of this 216-acre juniper and oak, hill country wilderness in the heart of Austin.

The Bright Leaf Preserve is the gift of Georgia B. Lucas, 1918 -1994. Ms. Lucas was inspired by the beauty, spirituality, and poetry of the land and wanted to preserve it for posterity, undeveloped and made available to the public through guided hikes. Formerly managed by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission, the Preserve has been managed by the Friends of Bright Leaf and Austin Community Foundation since 2006.
