We are excited to announce the completion of a 72-acre donated conservation easement of native habitat and open space along the Blanco River in rapidly growing Hays County. The conservation easement on Cathedral Oaks Preserve protects native habitats, water quality, and scenic views from public spaces as the property adjoins the future Hays County park, El Rancho Cima. The lush live oak savannah and bald-cypress riparian forest will remain intact forever.
