The mission of The Trinity Edwards Springs Protection Association (TESPA) is to protect the Trinity and Edwards aquifers, the springs that flow from this interconnected system, and the property rights of landowners who depend on this precious natural resource.

Clean groundwater, available in sufficient quantities to sustain the entire ecosystem, is essential to Wimberley Valley's ongoing cultural and commercial prosperity. The Association's mission was specifically developed to ensure communities are aware of their connection and responsibilities to the watershed and are capable of implementing water policies that will ensure water quality and availability for future generations:

  • Advocate for clean, clear flowing springs and streams and the sustained health of the Wimberley Valley.
  • Engage the community in land and water stewardship through research and education at the Jacob's Well Natural Area.

Our region's true wealth lies in its unique character and natural beauty. Protecting these resources protects our local economy.

The Citizens Alliance for Responsible Development (CARD) promotes sensible growth in the Wimberley Valley and western Hays County, an area known for its rugged natural beauty and rural Hill Country character.

CARD supports and encourages sustainable development and practices that protect local natural resources such as Blue Hole, Jacob's Well, Cypress Creek, the Blanco River and our aquifer.

CARD works with elected officials, developers and others to preserve these natural resources.

We educate and inform local citizens of impending threats to the future of our community, work with like-minded groups in the region and encourage active participation to protect this land we all love.
