Our latest conservation easement project is a monumental one! The permanent conservation of the 747-acre Ruby Ranch, a historical property in Hays County, is the final piece of the puzzle that will result in over 10,000 acres of contiguous open space.
Open Space is worth a great deal to our thriving community. Read inspiring stories about what conservation is worth to Mayor Lee Leffingwell, Hill Abel and Laura Agnew, Mayor Rose Cardona, Laurie Loew, and other members of our community, or tell your story here!
Land conservation projects are expensive, and we may not have a huge budget, but we’re efficient and we’re effective. Please consider a tax-deductible gift today to help Hill Country Conservancy protect open space and the Edwards Aquifer!
