In August, 2005, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission voted to turn Bright Leaf over to the Austin Community Foundation. In 2006, that transition took place. The Austin Community Foundation is committed to upholding the will of Georgia Lucas and preserving Bright Leaf. The Friends of Bright Leaf will be working together with the Austin Community Foundation to fufill the vision of Georgia Lucas.
