Sat. Feb. 25 1 PM - Dedication of sign and bench in memory of Dr Morris Beachy

Brian Ellis' Eagle Scout Project was completed in January, installing a sign and bench on the Bull Creek Trail in memory of Dr Morris Beachy.
Dr. Beachy was a renowned music professor at UT, lived on the banks of Bull Creek since the early 1960's and was one of the first residents to
promote the preservation of the creek. He died last year.
The dedication this Saturday February 25, from 1:00 to 1:40 pm.
The approximate location is:
7600 N Capital of Texas Hwy
Austin, TX 78731
Map location:
Enter the driveway to the office buildings and immediately turn right, go to the end of the parking area, turn left and follow the driveway to the rear
of the buildings where there is parking.
There's a sand volleyball court behind the office building at this location, and the trail head that leads to the site is on the right hand side of the back
edge of that court.
Traverse the trail a short distance along the fence behind the Canyon Vista Apartments until you Please come.
