Area Wildlife Management
While The Preserve at Walnut Springs offers exceptional Texas Hill Country properties, it’s much more than that. The Preserve has dedicated its wildlife management operations to generate a sustaining breeding, migrating and wintering native Texas wildlife population. Operating under a Wildlife Management plan allows our ranch owners the opportunity to join in the behind the scenes ranch management. This includes an annual bird and wildlife censuses and predator control. Wildlife populations are managed through organized hunts and rotational grazing ensures the integrity of the ecosystem.
The South side of our Johnson City ranch is home to a large population of endangered Golden Cheek Warblers; a small, migratory, songbird. Herds of blackbuck antelope call the north side home, roaming the grassy hillside in the evening and early morning. By managing the land properly, the Preserve is successfully protecting the natural diversity within.
