WORD of Comal County works with a variety of non-profit organizations to provided environmental safety and awareness.
South Central Texas Water Safety Coalition (SCTWSC)
The South Central Water Safety Coalition is located in Canyon Lake Texas, also known as the “Water Recreation Capital of Texas.” In our immediate area, we have two bodies of water, Canyon Lake and the Guadalupe River. But the region has several additional rivers, lakes, and the Gulf of Mexico is just a couple hours away. If water safety is on your mind, you have to be concerned about our region. The South Central Texas Water Safety Coalition was founded in 2008 with the notion to help educate the public on water safety and prevent needless water related deaths.
The South Texas Water Safety Coalition seeks to improve water safety knowledge and practices among all recreationalists through education and awareness programs, outreach events, and inter-agency cooperation, cost and resource sharing. The goal of these programs is to reduce or eliminate water-related accidents and drownings within the region.
Keep Canyon Lake Beautiful (KCLB)
KCLB is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors. Their mission is to educate and engage everyone about the responsibility of the environmental health of the community through: litter prevention, beautification, and waste reduction. This community-led group of like minded folks is passionate about keeping Canyon Lake, the Guadalupe River, and roadways beautiful and clean!
KCLB hosts two annual community cleanups. One in the spring and another in the fall. Contact us for more information.
If you are currently picking up trash in the district or would like to start, stop by our office to pick up a FREE trash grabber and some mesh bags. We want to provide our community with the tools to help us keep the area clean! We appreciate all current members who take part in this project.
A Popular Fishing Destination
As the Water Recreation Capital of Texas, it is no surprise that Canyon Lake has become a popular fishing destination. WORD has partnered with Texas Parks and Wildlife to stock 10,000 Black Crappie fingerlings into Canyon Lake on March 2021. This project will enhance the current crappie population and create an enjoyable fishing experience for all.
Guadalupe River Trout Stocking
Texas Parks and Wildlife stocks fish big enough every two to four weeks during summer and winter seasons. There should be a good supply of fish whenever you find time to visit!

Fish Attractor Project
The running conservation project by the Canyon Bass Club in cooperation with Texas Parks and Wildlife, WORD, and the Army Corps of Engineers assembled, transported to boats, and distributed 21 fish attractors into the lake.
These artificial habitats mimic trees. They are placed underwater to attract most cover-seeking species like sunfish, crappie, and large-mouth bass. Sometimes big catfish will hide in the cover as well.
