Baker Sanctuary Land Clearing

Baker Sanctuary land clearing update

March Update –

The fuel break project must cease operations on Feb 28th until September. It is likely that only the northern portion of the tract can be completed. From March 1 to August 31 is the time the golden-cheeked warblers make their habitat at the Baker Sanctuary. They are federally protected and no work can continue until they migrate out of the area.

There were delays in having the work begin due to contractual issues. This resulted in a later than expected start.

We appreciate your understanding!

As reviewed in the October HOA Annual Meeting, the Baker Sanctuary/Travis County Audubon Society (www.travisaudubon.org) received federal funds to create a fire break between the sanctuary and the homes in the Deer Creek HOA. The goal is to reduce the probability of fires by reducing ladder and fine ground fuels. They anticipate that the work will begin around Tuesday, January 22nd and will likely begin on Lime Creek by Canyon Springs.

The land clearing crews will access the park located at Zambia and Passionflower Pass with their equipment to gain access to some of the areas behind the homes on Zambia. This is the least evasive to access the area with the minimum effect on the terrain.
