We are Texans, Working Together to Conserve the Lands we Love and the Water we Depend On.

Land and water conservation are essential to a healthy Texas. Our lands protect our water supply, provide habitat for our fish and wildlife, preserve our agricultural heritage, and improve our quality of life. Without those wide open spaces to experience and enjoy, Texas just wouldn’t be Texas.

Texas land trusts work to conserve Texas’ special lands and waters by permanently protecting them from development for the benefit of the people, economy, and wildlife of our state. By protecting these lands, land trusts help ensure that every Texan has access to clean water, the freedom and peace granted by natural areas, and the opportunity to be physically connected to our natural and cultural heritage.

Watch this short video to learn more about the local land trusts working to preserve our state’s land and water resources now...and for the future.
