By protecting these working lands, together we will ensure that every Texan has access to clean water, feels the freedom and peace granted by open spaces and is
physically connected to our natural and cultural heritage.
We are Texans, working together to conserve the lands we love and the water we depend on. The lands we protect today make up the special fabric of our home state that will sustain our future.
Working land naturally cleans and captures water for deposit into our sources for drinking water improving quality and reducing
cost for cleaning.
IMPACTS OF LAND CONSERVATION
In times of low rainfall, conserved land sustains springs and aquifers critical to urban water supplies and make most efficient use of the rain that does fall.
Wildlife are sustained by large tracts of open space and access to water. Without conserved lands our wildlife populations will greatly diminish.
The single-most impactful thing you can do to help secure land for water is to let your legislators know you support increased state funding for private land conservation. Ask your state legislator to increase funding for private working land conservation.
Your support helps us conserve natural areas by negotiating private, voluntary agreements with property owners to leave their land undeveloped. These agreements are appealing to many because they offer a nonprofit, voluntary solution for land conservation that does not rely on government tax dollars or government programs to help protect the land.
For the LOVE of the Land
Meet those who have chosen to permanently conserve their land.
