Bastrop River Rally – 2018

Bastrop River Rally

Here at Stanberry and Associates Realtors, we’ve been won over by the many amazing things that Bastrop county has to offer for quite some time. Whether it is the Lakes creeks and rivers, the tall pines, the fact that you can still get a ten acre tract that is zoned as a farm or the small town lifestyle that is still available out here, we realize this is really a special place.

Keep Bastrop County Beautiful is partnering with the City of Bastrop to offer fun, family friendly events highlighting outside activities & awareness of our natural resources. All funds go back into our community to support clean ups, Adopt a street, pocket parks, environmental scholarships & recycle education.
