HCC has achieved land trust accreditation from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, demonstrating our commitment to permanent land conservation. This means that the iconic Hill Country landscape that we work tirelessly to conserve will be here – forever.
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!
HCC merchandise makes the perfect gift! You can support a great cause and find neat gear like the super soft HCC t-shirt, the durable HCC lunch tote, the HCC Here Forever Poster, and much more!
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!
