After weeks of collaboration and planning with environmental experts in Austin, HCC is excited to announce our Fall Lunch and Learn on diversity in Austin’s environmental community, which will take place on Monday, August 10th at Green Pastures.
HCC’s Emerging Professionals in Conservation (EPIC) has some exciting events coming up. Explore the outdoors or learn more about Austin’s conservation community!
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!
Join us on one of our Monthly Birding and Nature Hikes at Nalle Bunny Run Wildlife Preserve. The next hike is Saturday, June 15th!
Hill Country Nights IV was a huge success! Thanks to all the sponsors, volunteers, staff, and donors!
No big news here. Just thought we’d share these great pics from the EPIC bat paddle. Enjoy!
The Hill Country Conservancy, in partnership with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), recently purchased a conservation easement on the Ragland Ranch near Buda.
We’re looking for your favorite Hill Country photos to feature on the HCC website. The winning photo will be used as the header for next months newsletter and will be made available for download on our homepage!
