One of our core values at Jester King revolves around community concern -- a idea focused on educating, advocating for & showing hospitality toward our guests, our industry, and ourselves.

The JKVC is a way to partner on a variety of projects throughout the Travis County and Hays County areas, connecting people with organizations on a more personal level through group volunteering.

Jester King Volunteer Corps is open for all to join! Each month, we will choose one local non-profit to volunteer with as a group. You can find our upcoming JKVC events and the volunteer sign-up form below. For additional inquiries, please e-mail jkvc@jesterkingbrewery.com. First time volunteers will receive a JKVC t-shirt for their participation.

The Jester King Volunteer Corps was inspired by our friends at Tired Hands Brewing and the Tired Hands Volunteer Corps.

Renaming Celebration for Louis René Barrera Indiangrass Wildlife Sanctuary

Sunday, October 20th, 9 am - 12 pm

Join JK Volunteer Corps in support of the City of Austin Park Rangers and the Native Prairies Association of Texas on October 20th for their monthly volunteer workday at Louis René Barrera Indiangrass Wildlife Sanctuary.

This workday is a special one, as it marks the official renaming of the preserve in honor of Louis René Barrera, who for over twenty years managed the Austin Nature Preserves system and was its most devoted and powerful advocate. We will be celebrating René's life and work through volunteer service, to include seed collection, invasive vegetation removal, and construction of a bird blind.

The preserve is located on Blue Bluff Road, on the northeastern side of Walter E. Long Lake near US 290-E and TX-130 South. The preserve is currently in the middle of a cycle of prescribed fire, so conditions on the ground will determine exactly what tasks we'll be able to carry out.
