Texas is losing open space at the alarming rate of 20 football fields per hour. Wells and springs are running dry, treetops turn to rooftops in the blink of an eye, and nature seems farther and farther away. Great Springs Project is addressing these challenges posed by rapid urban development by creating a national park-sized corridor of protected lands between San Antonio and Austin. This presentation will provide an overview and history of the Great Springs Project with a focus on the strategies and benefits of land conservation as it relates to the unique ecosystems and flora of central Texas.

Marjesca Brown is the Real Estate Associate at the Great Springs Project where her work focuses on landowner outreach and supporting real estate transactions for conservation. She is a licensed Texas REALTOR® and serves as President of the Friends of McAllister Park, advocating for the protection and preservation of the natural features and beauty of San Antonio’s second largest municipal park.
