In Loving Memory of Leroy Petri

We are heartbroken to share with our Selah Community that we have lost our dear friend, Leroy Petri.

Fall Event Schedule

The team at Selah, Bamberger Ranch Preserve welcomes you to join us this fall for more hands on learning and fun!

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.
