Our website is dedicated to keeping members and interested members of the public up-to-date on opportunities for learning and volunteer service in our area. The strength of our program is in its nature as a mutually-supportive community of highly-motivated and independent individuals. This site hopes to empower that community by promoting communications about what the members have been doing and what they can be doing to serve Central Texas.
CAMN volunteers continue to make a difference in the stewardship of natural resources across our area. We are proud of all the great projects that are happening and want to share them with you. Take the time to share our pride in your hard work, the learning that occurs and the sharing of your knowledge with others. The evidence of this great effort can be seen in our Hill Country surroundings, our streams and rivers, our thickets and woods, prairies and parks, and finally our schools.

Barton Springs Salamander and Related Species
Our “November” meeting will be held Weds., December 4 at the ANSC. Our speaker will be Liza Colucci, a biologist with the Salamander Conservation Program of the Watershed Protection Department. She will be speaking on salamander life cycle, the threats and status of the Barton Springs salamander and related species, and the project at Eliza Springs (the “amphitheater” next to Barton Springs Pool) to open up and enhance the habitat there.
Statesman article that does a good job of outlining the background and project:
