"It's practical, common sense, and you don't have to be a millionaire," J. David Bamberger says. "To be a conservationist, love the natural world and do right by your neighbors doesn't take tons of money. It just takes commitment."
The mission of the Bamberger Ranch Preserve is to protect the land under its ownership, keep it in good health and balance, and educate the public about stewardship of the land, as well as awakening and nourishing a passion for learning about nature in both children and adults.
Selah is a 5,500 acre habitat restoration project located one hour north of San Antonio & one hour west of Austin, Texas. Environmental education and scientific research are key to its inspirational mission.
