Texans benefit from land stewardship.

Welcome to No Land No Water


We are farmers, ranchers, weekend warriors, and commuters. We are parents and grandparents, neighbors and friends. We are business owners and industry leaders.

We are native Texans who enjoy having water now and forever, just like you.


By connecting millions of people, we are a single powerful voice for land conservation and water security.

If you’re a Texan and you enjoy having water, we represent you.


We provide a unified front for advocating for land conservation and water security on a national level, a strategic center to ensure collaboration between each piece in the Texas water movement, and the ability to support local efforts through our community and communication resources.


No Land. No Water., is an educational campaign to help Texans connect the dots between land conservation and water security. Eighty three percent of raindrops that fall in Texas do so on private rural land. These lands perform critical ecological services to the general public by capturing, cleaning and storing water that will ultimately flow freely from our taps.

Texas has been losing its working agricultural land at an alarming rate to development and fragmentation challenging the land’s ability to protect our water supply. Our water sustainability depends, in large part, on the stewardship and conservation of private land. These lands sustain our lives & fuel our economy.

Texas working lands are undergoing a fundamental change, one that has implications for rural economies, national and food security, and conservation of water and other natural resources. Native landscapes are increasingly threatened by suburbanization, rural development and land fragmentation driven by rapid population growth. The goal of the Texas Land Trends report, published every 5 years, is to provide public and private decision-makers with information needed to plan for the conservation of Texas’ working lands.
