Baker Sanctuary, part of the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve (BCP), is 690
acres of nesting habitat for the Golden-cheeked Warbler -- one of the only
places in the world that this endangered songbird nests and breeds.

What does that mean for you?
*Creates higher property values and desirable living location;
*Limits urban sprawl and traffic, provides a buffer
between development and neighborhood residences;
*Supports fresh air, reduced light and noise pollution.
