The Llano River Watershed Alliance is an organization of landowners and interested stakeholders whose mission is to preserve and enhance the Llano River and adjoining watersheds by encouraging land and water stewardship through collaboration, education, and community participation.

What is a Watershed?  "…that area of land, a bounded hydrologic system, within which all living things are inextricably linked by their common water source and where, as humans settled, simple logic demanded that they become part of a community."..John Wesley Powell
