Join us for 4 important events this weekend and Monday.

This Saturday, the Texas League of Independent Voters is hosting the "Remember the Ogallala, Remember Vista Ridge" water forum in Wimberley from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. SOS Executive Director Bill Bunch will be speaking on a panel at 11:30. The event is free and open to the public: bring your own lunch or buy one there for $10. Mega-water schemes are afoot across our region: this is a great opportunity to find out what's really going on and how you can make a difference.

Join us Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the East Austin Studio Tour with Artist Barry George. Please join Save Our Springs Alliance at Barry George's Studio for this year's East Austin Studio Tour (EAST).  

Local artist, master metal sculptor and activist, Barry George, is very generously donating 100% of his proceeds to SOS. Here is his studio listing in the tour program. Check out some of his sculptures on our facebook page.

All of Barry's work is either inspired by environmental action and political/social comment. Besides his own work, Barry has amazing, funky pieces of arts, crafts, and found objects that he collected while searching for materials for his own sculptures.  Our heartfelt thanks go to Barry for donating years of his amazing work to SOS. 

On Sunday, see the Film Yakona with Live Music at The North Door. This is the last night for the screening of the movie about the San Marcos River, Yakona, with LIVE performances by the musicians who did the score for the film. The venue, The North Door, is at E. 5th, one block east of 35, and it is a musical venue made from a building that was once a sound stage.   Get your tickets in advance here or at the door, $10 or $12.  Doors open 8:30 p.m., event starts at 9:00 p.m.    

Then join the Save Barton Creek Association on Monday night for the SBCA annual meeting and party  at the Zilker Clubhouse.

All are invited to this long-standing community tradition - enjoy great food, drink, live music from Bill Oliver and his Otter Space Band, and join the Save Barton Creek Assn., a founder and close ally of SOS. If you have never been to the Zilker Clubhouse, do it Monday night. The festivities run from 6 until 10 p.m.
