Events Status and Coronavirus Update (March 17, 2020)

Nature and outdoor recreation are very important components during a health crisis but as an aggressive precaution the Bamberger Ranch will postpone all scheduled tour reservations and workshops effective today, March 17 through May 1, 2020. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and may choose to extend this decision through the end of May.

With the constantly evolving situation regarding the Coronavirus, we at Selah have a responsibility to protect the health of our staff and our families and to do our part to slow the spread of the virus and to ensure the continuity of Selah’s work. We wish all of our friends, volunteers and supporters health and patience as we work together to make a difference in the severity and the duration of the spread of the virus.

If you would like to help us care for one of Texas’ great conservation and education models, your online donation will help us to ensure Selah is here for you in the future.

Selah, Bamberger Ranch Preserve is a 5,500-acre ranch in Blanco County that has been restored to its original habitat. Our mission is to teach ethical land stewardship — by example and outreach. We offer seminars for landowners and serve as a research lab for botanists, zoologists, and other scientists. We provide hands-on science classes and nature camps for school children. Our public tours and workshops attract birdwatchers, photographers, and animal and plant enthusiasts.

After leaving the Ranch, many visitors are inspired to change consumption habits and better conserve natural resources. They leave with a vision of harmony with the land. They realize that the Ranch tells a story of hope: Given the chance, Nature can heal itself. Nature can heal us.
