Westcave Preserve is an ecological community of exceptional beauty located on 75 acres in the Hill Country. A semi-tropical grotto cuts deep within its sheltered canyon by perennially falling water. Orchids and cypress trees share the cool, moist, terrarium-like setting while cactus and juniper grow in the hot, dry habitat above the canyon rim. Our mission is to inspire people to develop a lifelong practice of enjoying and protecting nature.
