Texas Land Conservancy is thrilled to announce the permanent protection of 79 Ranch, a 1,766-acre oasis of rolling hills, canyons, and limestone bluffs along Hogg Bluff Creek in Mason County.

79 Ranch is an expansive property in western Mason County that encompasses rolling hills, canyons, and showcases distinct features including limestone bluffs lining the meandering Hogg Bluff Creek. Its healthy habitats are a testament to dedicated land stewardship and restoration techniques.
