Local Nonprofit and Community Organizations
Mission and Vision
Our mission is the preservation and conservation of the cultural and natural resources of the Cibolo Creek Watershed and surrounding areas in the Texas Hill Country.
The Cibolo Conservancy Land Trust is helping landowners preserve their legacies and working lands throughout Texas.
The Cibolo Conservancy protects 13,480 acres located in Kendall, Bandera, Comal, Real, Uvalde, and Gillespie Counties. This is over twenty square miles of the conserved land – no small accomplishment for a small land trust that was conceived by a few volunteers associated with the Cibolo Nature Center just 22 years ago – volunteers who just wanted to learn how to save some of the beautiful ranches of the Texas Hill County.
Conservation easements benefit the public by addressing one or more of the following values: The protection of a relatively natural habitat of fish, wildlife, or plants, or similar ecosystem. The preservation of open space (including farmland and forestland) where such preservation is for the scenic enjoyment of the general public. The preservation of land areas for outdoor recreation by, or the education of, the general public. (Note: most easements do not permit public access).
And conservation easements do something more – they protect family legacies – generations of memories and artifacts and stories that instruct us about our local history. A family’s bond to the land often leads to good stewardship and long-term thinking about what is good for the land. Our mission has been the preservation and conservation of the cultural and natural resources in the Texas Hill Country, with particular interest in the Guadalupe River, Blanco River and Cibolo Creek watersheds. We offer the public ranch walks on conserved properties to get the word out. Our workshops address concerns like land protection and threats to local landowners. If you are interested in conserving a private natural area in the Texas Hill Country, we can help. You can understand the process by clicking Easements 101.
