Wildlife in District Parks and Greenbelts
The District is fortunate to have an abundance of green space, trails and parks. In addition to attracting residences, these green spaces also attract wildlife. Some animals that have been spotted in our green spaces include deer, raccoons, coyotes, snakes of all types, opossum, etc.
Most wildlife is not a safety risk as long as you leave them alone. Don't panic, but take precautions and learn how to best deal with these wildlife:
Please note that the District does not provide Animal Control. These services are provided by Williamson County Animal Control. You may find more information on their website at Williamson County Animal Control.

Regional Notification System
Capital Area Council of Government’s (CAPCOG) Regional Notification System (RNS) uses a “reverse dialing” method to notify of critical emergency information in situations where property or human life are in danger. It also can be used to notify residents of other non-emergency events that affect them. The system has the ability to notify land-line and cell phone users if there is an emergency near their home, business or other locations in Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis and Williamson counties.
RNS provides enhanced notification capabilities to cell and land-line phones as well as email, SMS text, alpha pagers and numeric pagers. The system can send automated messages for certain types of weather events such as severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flash floods. Cell and land-line phones can receive warnings by checking the appropriate box on the registration form. Messages may include content such as incident-specific information, recommended protective actions or response directives.
Additionally, residents may choose to receive automated warnings - tornado, severe thunderstorm or flash flood, for example - from the National Weather Service.
