The Watershed Association works across several impact areas to ensure a holistic approach to watershed protection through engaging people in land and water conservation throughout the Texas Hill Country. Click here to learn more and support our work.

The Watershed Association is a non-profit organization located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, born out of a love for water.

Founded in 1996, the Watershed Association has been working to protect water through land conservation and education across the Hill Country.

Our vision is to create a greater understanding community-wide of the many benefits that flow from a respectful relationship with the land: human health, ecological health, economic sustainability, enriched community life, and the renewal of the human spirit.

Good news: Jacob's Well, the iconic Hill Country swimming hole, is flowing again after a record seven months of being dry

Not-so-good-news: A company with four wells near JW continues to pump far more water than allowed under its permit.

My report:

“We call it the hydro-illogical cycle, where when it rains [people say], ‘Oh, everything's fine. Let's build another thousand houses,'” David Baker of @lovejacobswell said. “And then next summer it gets dry, and then in a month the spring dries up.”

We have $20,000 left to raise by the end of the year. Can we count on you to help us close the gap? We appreciate the support and generosity! Go to and the click Support Us tab to make a tax-deductible contribution.
