Selah, Bamberger Ranch Preserve is a 5,500-acre ranch in Blanco County that has been restored to its natural habitat. Participants will tour a restored native landscape and experience the beauty of the Texas Hill Country. With lush restored native grassland savannah, Selah has fantastic biodiversity, from woody plants, succulents, forbs and grasses to birds, bees, and of course...bats! The Bamberger Ranch Preserve is home to the world's first artificial bat cave, known as the Chiroptorium! Participants will enjoy the emergence of tens of thousands Mexican Free-Tailed Bats (Tadarida brasiliensis) and Cave Myotis (Myotis velifer).
Bring the whole family! Thousands of school kids visit Selah every year, and there is lots for kids to see and do. Preserve staff will tailor interpretation of the highlights of the tour to be kid-oriented. A visit to see the dinosaur tracks is always a big hit! Enjoy dinner in the Hill Country (provided) then watch the bat emergence before returning to Austin.
