BASTROP – Austin blues diva Carolyn Wonderland will headline a fundraiser Oct. 17 in Bastrop for a local land trust that works to preserve farm and ranch lands, wildlife habitat and other open spaces in Central Texas.
The event is free and open to the public, but a $10 donation per person is suggested. There will be a LIVE AUCTION with Carolyn Wonderland signed guitar and amp, SXSW wrist bands, concert tickets and over 40 auction items total!
Purchase tickets online or at the door.
Proceeds will go the Pines and Prairies Land Trust (PPLT), which holds conservation easements and owns wilderness preserves in Bastrop, Lee, Fayette, Caldwell and Travis counties. PPLT’s properties include the Colorado River Refuge in Bastrop and the Yegua Knobbs Preserve near McDade.
PPLT is one of more than 30 land trusts in Texas that have helped conserve more than 1.6 million acres of farms, ranches, wetlands, wildlife habitat, urban parks, forests, watersheds, coastlines and river corridors in the state. These non-profit land trusts conserve natural areas by negotiating private, voluntary agreements with property owners to leave their land undeveloped.
The Colorado River Refuge is open to the public daily. PPLT also connects landowners with government agencies and private organizations offering technical and financial support for restoring and managing wildlife and other conservation practices.
