To preserve, protect, and restore the land, water, air, wildlife, unique features, and quality of life in the Texas Hill Country from the aggressive and insufficiently regulated expansion of the aggregate industry.

Preserve Our Hill Country Environment


Projects include educating communities on preservation of natural resources; developing legislation and common-sense regulations to protect the air, water, and other environmental assets of the Texas Hill Country; and conducting research into the hazards of limestone quarries, mines, concrete batch plants, and other aggregate operations (APOs). Our current focus is the proposed 1500-acre Vulcan quarry between Bulverde and New Braunfels.
