    About Nalle Bunny Run Wildlife Preserve:
    The 35-acre Nalle Bunny Run Wildlife Preserve is not only an environmental treasure, but an important habitat restoration project situated on the banks of the Colorado River. The preserve was donated to Hill Country Conservancy in December 2000 by the Nalle Family who wished for years to preserve the beloved “Bunny Run” for the public to enjoy. The conservation management of this preserved Lake Austin waterfront and proximity to Austin make the Nalle Bunny Run Wildlife Preserve a visual and environmental masterpiece.

    Wildlife is vitally important to the health of an ecosystem and is central to the Preserve’s mission to enhance habitat. The Nalle Bunny Run Wildlife Preserve is managed primarily for the benefit of songbirds, small mammals, and for migratory, wintering and breeding waterfowl.

    To ensure proper wildlife management of this vital piece of habitat, the Preserve is only open to the public through guided hikes such as these monthly birding and nature hikes. Hill Country Conservancy is a Texan by Nature Conservation Partner.
