Lands We Protect
Mitigation Futures Conservancy accepted their first conservation easement in December 2013 for a mitigation area located in San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas. The easement covers approximately six acres and protects an ephemeral stream mitigation area and associated upland buffer.
This mitigation area has been created to maintain site hydrology for the development, enhance stormwater quality prior to leaving the site, and provide a small pocket of urban wildlife refuge in a major developing section of San Antonio.
This conservation easement assists the land owner in developing on their site, while also maintaining essential water quality aspects adjacent to the Edwards Aquifer system.
