After a rigorous selection process, Hill Country Conservancy is very pleased to welcome Romey Swanson to the team! Romey joins us after seven years at Plateau Land and Wildlife, where he worked with private landowners and oversaw wildlife management planning activities throughout 14 counties in the southern Hill Country. Romey holds a Masters in Wildlife Ecology from Texas State University, and as a full-time naturalist his passion for Hill Country conservation is undeniable.
Romey will be acting as HCC’s Conservation Project Manager, working with Director of Land Conservation Frank Davis to engage private landowners and stakeholders throughout our focus area in discussions about private land conservation and conservation easements. Romey will also be helping with documentation of the wildlife and natural features on conservation easement properties as well as helping with annual monitoring and landowner services.
Having an extra set of “boots on the ground” is a great step forward for HCC, and will ensure an even greater impact from our land conservation efforts. With Romey’s help, we’re sure to bring more willing landowners to the table to help save critical water, wildlife and working lands throughout the Texas Hill Country for future generations.
