Hill Country Conservancy

Hill Country Conservancy is a nonprofit land trust that was formed in 1999 to preserve large strategic tracts of open space that conserve critical water features, preserve outdoor recreation opportunities, and help maintain the Texas Hill Country’s unique quality of life.

Hill Country Conservancy marshals public and private resources to preserve the natural areas and scenic vistas, aquifers and springs, rivers and streams, working farms and ranches, and the rural heritage of the Central Texas Hill Country for people to enjoy and cherish for generations to come.

The Hill Country population has doubled since 1980 and is expected to continue growing rapidly in the coming decades. That kind of growth and development has significant impacts on water quality, wildlife habitat, outdoor recreation, quality of life, and the region’s rural heritage.
