Big Thicket Natural Heritage Trust

The Big Thicket Natural Heritage Trust seeks to reduce the negative effects of these processes on plants and animals and the quality of life in the region. The Trust will protect wildlife diversity and natural communities of the Big Thicket and promote respect for and enjoyment of the rural character and culture of the region through encouragement of land stewardship values that promote sustainable communities. The primary mechanism for achieving these goals is acquisition (through purchase from willing sellers and acceptance of donations) of land, assets, and conservation easements.

The Big Thicket Natural Heritage Trust networks with many partners, including citizens, corporations, businesses, developers, conservation groups and governmental organizations to seek out the most significant unprotected lands in the Big Thicket. A primary focus of the BTNHT is to solidify protection of existing preserves by acquiring buffers for them and connections between them. Wherever feasible, ownership and land management responsibilities will be transferred to the appropriate government agency, conservation group, or will reside with environmentally conscientious landowners.
