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.

There are two new, advanced monitor wells in the Jacob's Well Groundwater Management Zone. A great video by Texas Water Development Board features interviews by Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District and Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District (BSEACD) staff and explains how groundwater sampling helps document aquifer dynamics. The Watershed Association supported the mulitport monitor well installation by providing the location for the well itself on one of our conservation lands.

Learn how @Nomadic Beerworks contributes to responsible water management through various methods and initiatives throughout their entire beer production process!🍺 FRIDAY🍺 We’re making waves for the The Texas Brewshed Alliance with our newest IPA release, “RIPPLE”💧.We collaborated to further their efforts to ensure cleaner water for Texans, through water management & land conservation. .As a brewery, we have implemented water recapture techniques to reuse water at multiple stages in brewing and we have agreed to let a group of PhD students, working for the Brewshed Alliance, use our facility for research..In order to highlight how ingredient selection also can play a role in water conservation, Ripple IPA highlights the Neomexicanus hops, a native drought tolerant species which requires less watering and has a very pleasant fruit and spice note. .It’s a drop in the bucket, but we believe enough small ripple can create a big wave 🌊 🍻#atxbeer #beerstoabetterworld #conservation ...
