The Narrows, Texas Hill Country
The Narrows is an ecologically weak and attractive Texas asset. Numerous scarce species make their residence in these distinctive cliffs and the nearby farm lands. The Narrows offers environment for the imperilled bird species, Black-capped vireo and the Golden-cheeked warbler. The worldwide rare plant, the Canyon mock-orange can be originated on the Narrows, as well as the uncommon maidenbush, wild Smoke tree and chatterbox orchid.
Due to the preservation ethic of a cluster of personal landowners, this asset will be sheltered forever from improvement and protected for its conservation worth. For this, the Texas Land Conservancy is intensely thankful for the foresight of these personal landowners.
This region was acquired in 2000 by a set of associates, who shared a objective of conserving the rareness of a canyon between sheer bluffs up to 40 feet tall shaped by the Blanco River in the Texas Hill Country. The land includes a 1000-foot-stretch known as the “Narrows,” as well as an extra 3000 feet of river facade. The combined owners contributed a conservation easement to TLC, in November 2001, making sure that the ranch will never be more subdivided.
