The Texas Land Trust Council (TLTC) engages in a variety of programmatic efforts that benefit the land conservation community in Texas. And land and water conservation are essential to a healthy Texas. The protection and enhancement of water resources and the preservation of our natural heritage are of the utmost importance to our economy and our quality of life.
In Texas, open lands help preserve important natural functions, like buffering our communities from flood damage and providing drinking water and areas for food production. Iconic expanses of grasslands and forests, marshes and desert, farms and ranches have defined our state’s history and culture and continue to sustain our economy. In fact, these open landscapes support our rapidly growing urban communities in many ways.
