As Austin’s population grows, open land becomes a key discussion. Throughout Austin’s history, the 250,000 acres overlying the Barton Springs Edwards Aquifer (this sounds weird, is it officially this name or is it two places?) has been divided between the area’s business and environmental interests. The solution became Hill Country Conservancy which created a coalition of leaders between the business and environmental communities. The nonprofit’s mission is to help facilitate communication between both parties in order to protect our land and our economy.In this episode of Everyday Superhumans, Charlie and Kyle chat with Adrienne Longnecker, the Chief Operation Officer and Director of Development of Hill Country Conservancy. We talk about one of Charlie’s favorite trail systems, the Violet Crown Trail. Kyle shows off his vocabulary and understanding of the word easements. Finally, did you know Texas has invasive species?
