The Trail Conservancy is excited to announce our first Arts+Culture project - TEMPO on the Trail! In partnership with The City of Austin's Art in Public Places program, TTC will host temporary public art on the Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail in 2024-2025, and we are looking for emerging and talented Austin artists to help!

Call for Artists!

We will select up to eight artists/artist teams for TEMPO on the Trail. If you want to create temporary art for the Trail, our Request for Qualification application is open until October 16th. We will also host a virtual Open House on October 5th about the project. For more information on the TEMPO on the Trail project, our open RFQ, or the Virtual Open House, visit our website.

Join us on Sunday, November 5 for your choice of seating times under the big trees and bright sky overlooking the Ann & Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake – a 2PM daylight brunch or 6:30PM twilight dinner.

This year’s theme is a celebration of Arts & Culture as we prepare to launch our new public art plan along the Butler Trail.

Twilight on the Trail is The Trail Conservancy’s biggest fundraising event each year. Trail supporters, friends, and partners will celebrate with live music, themed cocktails, creative performances, and a curated meal amongst friends.

Put together a creative, artistic spin on the traditional gala attire of “cocktail on top, Trail on bottom” and raise your glasses (and paddles) and help us raise critical funds for ecological preservation and programming of Austin’s most beloved Trail.

We will focus on removing small invasive woody species, like golden rain trees and paper mulberry with weed wrenches, to plant native species later this fall. As always, we provide tools and gloves; you don't need any experience. Sign up for volunteer events on our NEW GivePulse Page.
