Dansko Days benefit Texas Land Conservancy

Dansko Days benefit Texas Land Conservancy 

Do you spend hours on your feet every day? Then you probably know about Dansko shoes. They are loved by doctors, nurses, teachers, sales clerks, chefs and their kitchen staff. Dansko shoes are comfortable and they have style. Whole Earth Provision Co. has been celebrating Dansko Days for years, but now we’ve added something new. For each pair of full price Dansko shoes sold at Whole Earth stores from May 1st through May 10th, our Dansko rep will donate $5 to the Texas Land Conservancy.

The Texas Land Conservancy was founded in 1982 by Ned Fritz, known as the father of Texas conservation. Responding to the encroachment of development on natural areas in Texas, Fritz decided that there was a need for a land trust that would take on the preservation of small but important properties that were not large enough to be saved by other organizations. Using conservation easements the Texas Land Conservancy has preserved the physical and ecological integrity of wildlife habitat, native plant communities and scenic landscapes across the state for the benefit of present and future generations of Texans.

Most of the property protected by the Texas Land Conservancy is not open to the public. Conservation easements limit development and provide for restoration and land management, but the land still remains in private hands. However, there are nine sites open to the public. Two are in major Texas cities: Oak Cliff Nature Preserve in Dallas and Cibolo Creek Preserve in San Antonio.

We hope you’ll visit us during Dansko Days, find your new favorite pair of shoes and support the Texas Land Conservancy with your purchase.
