HCC currently holds conservation easements on 11,500 acres across the Hill Country. Land conservation projects are multi-year, multi-million dollar projects. Funding the transactional elements of these projects requires significant public funds provided by voter initiatives and government agencies. HCC is responsible for the ongoing operational expenses to identify partners, assess projects, secure public funding, negotiate agreements and steward the property in perpetuity. Over the last decade, HCC has leveraged less than a million dollars invested in staffing resources into conservation easements with an appraised value of more than $91,000,000.
