Regarding the COVID-19 Emergency

DHCS cares deeply about the preservation of the Driftwood area and its residents and visitors.  For this reason, all meetings and public events of the DHCS are cancelled through April 30, 2020. Communication from DHCS will be accomplished through electronic media. We thank all of our members and friends and request each of you take appropriate actions to protect and preserve your family and friends. We will get through this emergency and will be stronger as a result.

 Currently, the Driftwood community is working with Hays County Commissioners and Texas state legislators to place the Travis Heritage Trail under the Texas State Transportation Code Title 6, Chapter 391., Highway Beautification. This will ban junk yards, sanitary fills and billboard placement on the Heritage Trail, and preserve the beauty and historic significance of this roadway for future generations.

Last spring, a large group of Dripping Springs High School students conducted a service project at our Natural Area.  They assisted with installation of freestanding rainwater systems  (donated by Plateau Land & Wildlife) as well as other necessary  weeding and cleanup activities. Master Naturalists also provided support. Another project is planned for this March.
