Organization Profile

San Marcos Greenbelt Alliance


The San Marcos Greenbelt Alliance is working to protect the quality of life for the people of San Marcos through the creation of interconnected parks and natural areas. Today, in the midst of unprecedented growth throughout Central Texas, SMGA is dedicated to ensuring that along with development, we take care to protect natural areas for ourselves, our children, and our future. SMGA is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), all volunteer organization that survives on the membership dues, donations, grants, perspiration, brains and brawn of people who understand the value of the natural world. Since 1998 we have been working hard with developers, the City of San Marcos, Hays County, and other local, state, and national entities to secure natural areas, promote stewardship, and provide low impact access. We are not opposed to development; we simply consider natural areas to be part of high quality development patterns, the necessary infrastructure, that can connect people with parks and greenspace for the benefit of all. All the while we celebrate the greenspaces and encourage others to do so with us or in their own way. We help create access and connect these beautiful, valuable places with trails. If you enjoy the natural world, we would love to have you join us.
