Wasteland To Dreamland

50 years ago David Bamberger purchased 5,500 acres of land in the Hill Country of Texas that was by any definition a wasteland.

David Bamberger earned a small fortune by building up Church’s Fried Chicken with his business partner and then selling it. He bought the land and began the process to rehabilitate it. Planting native grasses was the key to bringing water back to the land. Saleh, Bamberger Ranch Preserve is a testament to how people can practice conservation and be good stewards of the land that is so important to all of us.
