Conservation Easements Benefit Each of Us

Here in the Hill Country, we are extremely fortunate that so many people are passionate about their relationship with the land. In fact, we often take it for granted, but you don’t have to travel far to see that this land ethic doesn’t exist everywhere. The Hill Country is a truly special place that’s reminiscent of an earlier time before civilization, with its clear streams and springs, rolling hills, rock outcrops, majestic live oaks, abundant wildlife, and (at times) lush grasses and wildflowers.
