After 7 years of service to St. Edward’s University and Wild Basin, our beloved Kim Johnson is moving on to new adventures. Over the past 7 years, Kim has been a vital member of the Wild Basin team and the driving force behind a broad range of Wild Basin programs, including directing Wild Basin’s social media, managing volunteer trail guides and tours, organizing countless events at Wild Basin including full-moon yoga and concerts by local musicians, spearheading Wild Basin’s role in the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve Hike & Lecture Series, and expertly mentoring many student interns. Kim’s contributions to Wild Basin have made a deep and lasting impact on its programs. We are so grateful for Kim’s expertise, hard work, and big heart — she will be greatly missed! Kim’s last day will be Friday, August 11th. Please join us in a send-off celebration for Kim at Wild Basin on Thursday, Aug 10 from 5:30 – 8pm (potluck on the deck).
Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve was mentioned as one of four destinations for students “on an Aggie budget” in Texas A&M’s online magazine, The Battalion. The article can be found here:
