The Long Game: Creating lasting conservation in a high growth region.
Tuesday, September 12th 6-7:30pm
Executive Director, Hill Country Alliance
Description: It is no secret that Comal County and the Hill Country face enormous challenges. Deep drought, booming population growth, catastrophic flood, and limited planning tools all characterize this particularly unique part of the state. And at the same time, there is an increased awareness of the urgency of changing the way we grow. Business as usual growth threatens to push us past the carrying capacity of the lands and waters of the Hill Country. The time to act is now.
Katherine will describe the tools and approaches that the Hill Country Alliance and the broader Texas Hill Country Conservation Network are employing to shift the future of this region we call home. She’ll talk about the role each of us can play, and why what we need more than ever is strong leadership, consistent grassroots advocacy, and a shared vision for the Hill Country we want to hand on to future generations of Central Texans.
