Join TLC and other fellow Hill Country enthusiasts by exploring Los Rincones -138 acres owned by the Texas Land Conservancy. This preserve features Juniper-oak woodlands, grassland savannas, and is a beautiful snapshot of the Texas Hill Country just outside of Kerrville. We will be going off-trail over rocky, occasionally steep terrain, finding plants both beautiful and rare.

TWO HIKING OPTIONS:

Birding Focus 8:30-11:30am

Botany Focus 12:30-3:30pm

Hikes are free and open to the public, however space for both hikes is limited. For more information or to reserve your spot please email: rachael@texaslandconservancy.org.
