Wildland Conservation Division volunteers Lila Gloria Chris and Audrey led a group on a hike in the Butler Ecological Preserve an area at the end of Jester Boulevard that is otherwise closed to the public The beginning of the hike is down a wagon trail through shrubby live oak and evergreen sumac under power lines suitable habitat for black capped vireo Lila stops to tell about the brown headed cowbird trap before guiding us off the trail and through the woods She notes that we are now walking through golden cheeked warbler habitat mature juniper and oak woodland pausing on a rocky slope that is in fact a field of cretaceous era fossils At the bottom of the slope is a running creek and from the side of the creek bubbles Tenacio Spring named for the previous caretaker of the land The base of a tree trunk forms a fiercely guarding gargoyle above the spring Then back up the trail past a deep ravine we come to Kiki s Spring named for Kent Butler s childhood moniker To register to go
