WVWA’s land conservation program is a combination of science, policy, and education. To further land and water conservation, WVWA acts as a regional land trust serving Hays County and is a proud member of the Texas Land Trust Council. From our inception WVWA worked to reassemble land that had been divided into many smaller parcels into the contiguous 96 acres directly surrounding Jacob’s Well, our most renowned achievement to this day. Save Our Springs Alliance holds a conservation easement on the tract designed to restore and protect the conservation values of the land in perpetuity.

In addition to the conserved public lands and properties owned by WVWA, the Association also monitors three conservation easements on private properties in the Wimberley Valley and actively stewards WVWA’s property adjacent to Jacob’s Well. Land conservation is central to achieving the mission of sustaining spring flow and healthy economy of the Wimberley Valley.
