Next Monthly Meeting is Monday, 25 March
Book signing and photography exhibit featuring “Seasons at Selah: The Legacy of Bamberger Ranch Preserve” presented by David K. Langford with J. David Bamberger
In 1969, J. David Bamberger bought what he described as “the sorriest piece of land” in the Texas Hill Country for the specific purpose of restoring the degraded landscape. Today, Selah, Bamberger Ranch Preserve serves as a model for land conservation and environmental education.
Seasons at Selah: The Legacy of Bamberger Ranch Preserve chronicles Bamberger’s dedication to ethical land stewardship and conservation education through stunning photographs of the land, plants, and wildlife he has devoted his time and resources to protect. Photographers Rusty Yates and David K. Langford capture each season at Selah and offer an intimate glimpse into the day-to-day management and operations of the ranch as well as some of the challenges it faces. In the accompanying text, Andrew Sansom shares his own stories from his decades-long friendship with Bamberger.
Meetings are held in the Upper Guadalupe River Authority Lecture Hall, 125 North Lehmann Drive near downtown Kerrville on fourth Mondays excluding August and December. Join us at 6:15 p.m. to chat with members and guests, chapter business at 6:45, presentation begins at 7.
