Essential Partners to Bird City Texas
Paul Fushville, a biologist, and founding member of the the Dripping Springs Birding Club, worked with the Hays County Master Naturalists to build the bird viewing station at Dripping Springs Ranch Park. After joining the Dripping Springs Parks and Recreation Commission in 2018, he was instrumental in the City's efforts to join Bird City Texas!
