The sustainable forty acres

The University of Texas at Austin strives for excellence in advancing environmental stewardship and sustainability on our campus, in our academic and research programs, and in our public service and outreach activities. Together we work to advance economic vitality, ecological integrity, and social welfare.

Update: Waller Creek Transformation

Next time you're walking down San Jacinto be sure to check out all of the work that is being done on Waller Creek.  The university is clearing invasive species from the creek both to promote safety and sustainability as outlined in the UT Austin Landscape Master Plan.  Read more about the initial clearing work.  Over the next several seasons look for our reseeding of native species and a new chapter in the life of Waller Creek.
