Hill Country Rivers have Lost a Champion
In 2022, Real County and the greater Hill Country of Texas lost a champion of Texas Rivers with the passing of Sky Lewey. Sky was instrumental in passing the law prohibiting driving in Texas rivers, worked tirelessly to promote the prohibition of phosphate and effluent release in pristine river and creek segments in Texas, and literally wrote the book on Riparian health.
Sky lived on the Nueces River, and championed causes for the river through her work at the Nueces River Authority. Let’s keep her spirit alive by honoring our Real County Rivers, and continue her good works by keeping our rivers clean and healthy through proper Riparian care.
