For 20 years the Water Quality Protection Lands have protected and restored land, groundwater, working ranches, and open space to benefit Barton Springs. As our hill country community grows, these lands represent some of the last wild places for wildlife and people. Join us for a few hours, or for a full day, to celebrate the successes of this community-driven conservation effort. Learn more and register for the event here.
