TLC staff, board members, and supporters gathered in Dallas June 6 & 7 to protect a true gem, Oak Cliff Nature Preserve, in participation with the 22nd Annual National Trails Day. We eased into the weekend with an evening of cocktails and conversation at BarBelmont on Friday night. On Saturday, volunteers dedicated their morning to cutting branches, picking up trash, mowing, and more on the 8 miles of trails within the preserve. The success of the day was totally dependent upon our very willing (and, might we add, cheerful!) volunteers and the use of a dumpster donated by Waste Management - thank you, thank you! Our volunteers were treated to delicious KIND bars during the work day and cooled off at the end with popsicles from Pop Star Handcrafted Popsicles. Our thanks to both of these businesses for their continued support!
We had such a wonderful time hiking with a nice group of outdoor enthusiasts this past Saturday at Los Rincones. In case you haven't brushed up on your Spanish, Los Rincones means "the corners," which is a reference to the boxed canyons we were able to see first hand this weekend! It was a beautiful day with fairly mild temperatures and there were so many plants, trees (and a few flowers) to learn about. Thanks to Daniel Dietz, TLC Stewardship Director, for leading both hikes and thanks to everyone who joined us! It was great getting to know all of you a little and we look forward to seeing you at the next one!
Protecting the Nature of Texas In the spring of 2012, filmmaker Ben Hamilton travelled around the state to capture TLC's conservation work. Along the way he met three landowners who have chosen to conserve their land with TLC. Hear their heartfelt stories of Texas heritage and love for the land and enjoy spring wildflowers, sweeping vistas and bright Texas stars in this moving nine-minute tribute to the work of Texas Land Conservancy.
The Future of TexasAnother great take on the work we do here at Texas Land Conservancy- be among the first to view our brand new short film by the talented Ben Hamilton of Pioneer Videography. If you would like to support protecting land all over our amazing state click here to make a charitable contribution today! Our work is only made possible by generous donations from people like you.
Take a look back at the events that we participated in or hosted in 2013. It was a great year full of work days, fundraising, and fun.
Help support the work of Texas Land Conservancy and join conservation successes like this: In 2012 alone, TLC was able to complete five projects totaling 3,524 acres. Combined that’s more than three times larger than White Rock Lake Park in Dallas and eight times larger than Hermann Park in Houston! The demand for water by our state’s growing population will be a tremendous challenge we will continue to face in the coming decades. Fortunately, conserving land makes a big impact on the future water quality and quantity in our state. Join us today.
