Silver Crew has spent the past week serving with Austin’s Water Quality Protection Lands outside of Kyle TX. The crew has been preparing a large, 600 acre tract of land recently acquired by the WQPL for upcoming prescribed burning.
The work that the crew is completing will ultimately make it easier and safer for fire crews to burn unwanted heavy brush and return the land to wild grassland prairie. This will both mitigate the risk of Uriel wildfires as well as improve the return of water to aquifers that feed Austin.
Along the way, Silver Crew encountered one of the many critters central Texas has to offer.
