Our Hill Country land, water, and wildlife won big at the voting polls. Seventy percent (70%) of Hays County voters supported a $75 million parks and open space bond that will protect thousands of acres in the Barton Springs and San Marcos Springs watershed. Thank you voters!!! These lands include key tracts on the Edwards Aquifer recharge zone that SOS and the San Marcos River Foundation have worked for more than six years to protect. See some of the projects that will be funded with these bonds here.
Also, the success of the Biden/Harris ticket means that the Trump administration’s assault on our air, land, water, wildlife, the climate and environmental science can be reversed. New leadership at the EPA and the Department of Interior can make a major difference here in the Hill Country, across the nation, and around the world. But we will continue to have to demand action at the local, state and federal levels, while taking action in our personal lives that move us towards a sustainable, healthy future. Our children, grandchildren, and the generations beyond deserve to know and enjoy the beautiful planet that they have entrusted to us.
