The Balcones Canyonland Preserve, which includes portions of Barton Creek, is created to protect eight endangered species. Acquisitions will continue over a 30-year period primarily by the City of Austin and Travis County.  

It's a visionary result worthy of the promise of Austin,Texas.

— Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt
