The Water Protectors Fund protects our aquifers, springs, creeks, rivers – and the sole source of drinking water for thousands of people by financing critical science, education, advocacy, and legal initiatives in the Hill Country.  Click the banner to find out more and get involved.

The Watershed Association is a non-profit organization located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, born out of a love for water.

Founded in 1996, the Watershed Association has been working to protect water through land conservation and education across the Hill Country.

Our vision is to create a greater understanding community-wide of the many benefits that flow from a respectful relationship with the land: human health, ecological health, economic sustainability, enriched community life, and the renewal of the human spirit.

The City of Wimberley Council has opened a public hearing on the Transportation Master Plan. Public Comments will continue to be accepted until December 1 at the next City Council Meeting where agenda items include the public hearing and discussion and possible action on the Transportation Master Plan.The intense drought of 2022 reminds us that our groundwater supplies are finite. Careful planning must include discussion of transportation infrastructure but also development areas, conservation lands, and water supply, demand, and protection. The Watershed Association submitted public comments that suggest removing roads through undeveloped areas, establishing a Hill Country Roadway designation with setbacks and construction guidelines, and updating the plan to reflect community environmental protections--not just carrying projects forward because they were on an outdated plan.Transportation, development, and water issues are all connected. Please consider voicing your thoughts, comments, and concerns before the December 1 meeting. Details and the full Watershed Association public comment letter are available online at ...
