The Llano River watershed lies within 10 counties: Edwards, Kimble, Llano, Mason, Menard, Real, San Saba, Sutton, Gillespie, and Kerr. It also contains 253 miles of river corridor, and three cities of significant growth: Junction, Mason, and Llano.
What We’re Protecting
Widely known for its scenic beauty and recreational use, the Llano River flows for over 100 miles through the Texas Hill Country. As it winds through the rolling limestone hills of the Edwards Plateau, the clear, spring-fed river is lined by bottomland hardwood trees. Texas Land Conservancy strives to conserve Texas’ wide open spaces. As our state’s urban areas expand and grow, natural areas that support wildlife and plant communities are rapidly diminishing. Population pressure in the Llano River watershed is still relatively low but is growing. If we can work with interested landowners to conserve land ahead of progressing development, then we can prevent future loss of wide open spaces and protect our natural heritage.
