About This Project

Lady Bird Lake and the 20 miles of trail that surround it are two of the most valued natural assets in Austin, Texas. Millions of people use the trail and lake every year. Fred Phillips Consulting is working with The Trail Foundation to design and install rain gardens, develop erosion control structures, perform native revegetation, and develop seating projects on this Austin treasure. These improvements will capture rainfall, provide pollinator habitat, reduce sedimentation into the lake, and provide an area to relax, reflect, and enjoy the natural beauty of this region.
