About the Central Texas Conservation Partnership.

Central Texas is home to a majority of Texas' 28 million residents. In recent years, many residents have chosen to leave suburban areas to purchase and enjoy rural life on sub-divided "ranchettes" in a region once dominated by large ranches. Landowners in Central and West Texas are faced with a changing landscape, an increasing human population and special protection needs (wildfire, oak wilt, invasive plants).

The purpose of the Central Texas Conservation Partnerships is to develop a well-integrated conservation initiative that incorporates components of stewardship, oak wilt management, watershed protection and restoration, and wildfire prevention, including wildfire risk/hazard reduction. 

Development and delivery of this conservation initiative relies on fostering partnerships and cooperation among diverse stakeholders including collaboration with public and private natural resource organizations. The goal of this website is to provide a centralized, accessible resource for important information and guidelines for effectively conserving the property you already have or enhancing your property to meet your goals. By visiting this website, you will learn about a wide array of training opportunities, programs, services and technical assistance offered by various Central Texas land management agencies and organizations.
