How YOU Can Preserve the Texas Hill Country
We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to preserve the special places of the Texas Hill Country. Our speaker, George Cofer, will explain the opportunities to work with many stakeholders throughout the Hill Country to preserve the creeks, streams, rivers, scenic vistas and rural heritage. He will also talk about why providing the general public access to nature and outdoors experiences is more important than ever in today’s hectic world and how we all can get involved.
About our speaker
George Hume Cofer, Jr. is Executive Director of the Hill Country Conservancy, a nonprofit land trust that marshals public and private resources to preserve the natural areas and scenic vistas, aquifers and springs, rivers and streams, working farms and ranches, and the rural heritage of the Central Texas Hill Country for people to enjoy and cherish for generations to come.
Mr. Cofer is a sixth-generation Austinite and fifth-generation Texas rancher. His love of the great outdoors and conservation of the natural environment come from being blessed by the opportunity to spend his childhood summers on a working cattle ranch along the Frio River in Uvalde County and from his outdoor experiences as an Eagle Scout.
For fun, George surfs hurricanes.
