Connemara Conservancy Updated:08/2022

For more than three decades, the Connemara Conservancy has been at the forefront of land conservation and environmental education in Texas.

From family farms to conservation-minded residential developments, Connemara works with farmers, ranchers and other landowners as well as city officials and forward-thinking developers to protect over 5,000 acres of land throughout North Texas.

Our service area covers four different eco-regions in 57 counties: Blackland Prairie, Post-Oak Savannah, Cross Timbers and Rolling Plains.

In addition, thousands of students, families and organizations participate in our restoration and environmental education programs each year.

Our History
The Connemara Conservancy was founded in 1981 by Frances Williams and her daughter, Amy Monier, as one the first land trusts in Texas.

Ahead of her time, Frances was concerned that her family’s farmland was in jeopardy of succumbing to urban sprawl. Her original donation of the 72-acre Meadow Preserve on the border of Plano and Allen in North Texas guaranteed that future generations would be able to experience the great outdoors in all its natural beauty.

From that beginning, Connemara has grown to become one of the state’s recognized leaders in land conservation and environmental education.

The vision of the Connemara Conservancy Foundation is to become a nationally recognized leader in the protection and conservation of open space and critical habitats in order to improve the quality of life for current and future generations.

Connemara’s mission is to help farmers, ranchers and other landowners as well as developers and local governments protect and conserve important tracts of remaining open space. In addition, Connemara is committed to educating current and future generations on the important role that open space plays in improving our quality of life.
