Texas Cave Conservancy

This non-member, non-profit, 501 (c) (3) Texas Corporation is dedicated to the protection of caves, cave life, and aquifers as related to caves. We work through public education, scientific research and cave management by assisting land developers, municipalities, other non-profit organizations and private land- owners in the protection and management of caves. Currently, we are involved in cave management activities in over fifty cave preserves in the Austin, Texas area. Over one hundred and fifty caves are protected.

There are over one thousand known caves in the urban areas throughout Texas. Some of the best caves have already been destroyed. As development continues, the goal of the Texas Cave Conservancy is to save as many caves as possible through the establishment of parks and preserves. Much of our income is from the design, construction, and the management of cave preserves. As a non-profit organization, our consultation is provided at no cost to the cave owner.

We are currently working with cavers and cave owners in Bexar, Edwards, Hays, Kinney, Kimble, Real, Sutton, Travis, Val Verde, Uvalde and Williamson Counties. We are, however, interested in cave protection throughout all of Texas. We work to protect caves through conservation easements, donations, leases, or purchase.

The Texas Cave Conservancy is a grass roots organization started by cavers. Please review our conservation policy, history, and activities. If you feel that Texas down-under is worth saving, you are invited to assist the Texas Cave Conservancy as Associates.
